MK Stalin to restart the probe on Jayalalithaa's Death:- Tamil Nadu ex-Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa was hospitalized for months before her death and there are lot of speculations about her demise. DMK Chief and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin decided to restart the probe in Jayalalithaa's death. Justice Arumugasamy Commission was set up in 2017 to probe the death of Jayalalithaa. More than 100 witnesses were investigated and the list included politicians, personal staff, doctors and nurses from Chennai's Apollo Hospitals. Jayalalithaa passed away in December 2016. After her death, Jayalalithaa's close aide VK Sasikala wanted to take over the leadership but she was imprisoned in the disproportionate assets case.
The Commission too landed into controversies and Apollo Hospitals accused the commission of staying biased. The Commission was idle and tight-lipped after the controversy surrounded. Now the DMK government revived the plans and decided to re-investigate the death of Jayalalithaa. AIADMK’s three-time MP V Maitreyan asked the Chief Minister to vacate the stay of the Supreme Court and he reminded about the election promise of DMK. MK Stalin decided to keep his promise and speed up the probe very soon.
