A picture, which has gotten plenty of mileage over the past few days, especially on WhatsApp, and claims to be one of the 'sick' Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in ICU of the Apollo Hospital, has now been conclusively proven fake.


The picture was taken at a hospital in Peru, say sources. Moreover, the photograph is supposed to be eight years old.


The photo, in reality, the picture of a woman who was being treated at EsSalud Hospital in Lima, Peru on October 20 in 2009.


The photograph is easily available, as it has already been published on the website of the EsSalud Hospital.
