Chennai (GN News)—-While hearing the public interest petition related to former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa’s death here today, Justice Vaidyalingam heading a two-judge vacation bench said that, “Media has raised a lot of doubts, personally I also have doubts in Jayalalithaa’s death,”.  Former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa died on 5th December after a prolonged illness in Chennai’s Apollo hospital after the hospitalisation of 75 days.   

A PIL was filed by an AIADMK party worker P A Joseph seeking an inquiry commission or a fact- finding committee to probe the circumstances the former Chief Minister died. Justice Vaidyalingam remarked that the court may order the exhumation of the body. The court has issued a notice to the government.

It is to be noted that Jayalalithaa’s loyalists are alleging foul play in his death from very first day.
