Supreme Court dismisses Sasikala Pushpa petition seeking CBI probe into Jayalalithaa’s death.
Threatening to impose costs if they persist in their efforts, the Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed petitions filed by expelled AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa and a youth organisation seeking CBI investigation into the “mysterious death” of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.
Sasikala Pushpa, who recently came into the limelight for her feud with the now General Secretary of AIADMk, Sasikala Natarajan, alleged in her petition that Jayalalithaa’s death was ‘suspicious’ as her actual medical condition was not disclosed. She had further added that the mystery around her death was increased by the fact that no one was allowed to visit her, her funeral photographs showed embalming marks and everything from her hospitalisation to her death ‘was kept under wraps’.
Pushpa’s plea was one among a series of prominent petitions demanding a detailed probe into Amma’s death. Sasikala Pushpa had demanded that the Tamil Nadu government, the Apollo hospital and the Union government disclose everything in relation to Jayalalithaa’s death to the Supreme Court of India.
