Posted [relativedate] at [relativetime time_format=”H:i”]
The death mystery of former Chief Minister of Tamilnadu Jayalalithaa is getting murkier as the investigating commission in the incident has now summoned her close aide VK Sasikala as well as Apollo Hospital Chairman Pratap Reddy on Friday. The court asked them to file documents in relation to the death of Jayalalithaa within 15 days.
The government of Tamilnadu has organized a Commission of Inquiry that is headed by former Madras High Court Judge A. Arumughaswamy, to probe the circumstances and incidents that led to the death of Jayalalithaa. The summoning of Sasikala and Apollo Chairman by the commission comes in the wake of a video supposedly showing Jayalalithaa in a hospital appeared on the internet recently. It is to note that the video came into the picture just a day ahead of the RK Nagar by-poll elections on December 21.
The former Chief Minister and AIDMK supremo have spent 75 days in the Apollo hospital before breathing her last on December 5th last year. There are many reports of people raising doubts about the suspicious death, which included even the deputy chief minister Pannerselvam.
