TTV Dhinakaran has claimed that jailed AIADMK leader Sasikala had shot video of late former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister before her death. Dhinakaran had said that he will submit it before any probe agency, including the CBI, according to reports.
Dhinakaran said his family has the video of hospitalised Jayalalithaa shot by Sasikala. He also claimed it had not been released so far since Jayalalithaa at that time was clad in a ‘nightie’.
“Amma (Jayalalithaa) had lost a lot of weight. It was a video shot by my aunt Sasikala herself. You all know none would have seen Amma in a nightie, not any functionary. Even when Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi visited Amma following her accident in 1989, she was fully attired. She always maintained that dignity,” Dhinakaran said. It has been learnt that the video of Jayalalithaa, attired in a ‘loose nightie’, was shot by Sasikala after the former was shifted from the ICU to a room in the hospital.
Tamil Nadu government had set up an inquiry commission headed by a retired high court judge to probe AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa’s death, amid renewed demands for a thorough investigation after a state minister claimed their party leaders had lied about her health condition. Justice (Retd.) Arumugasamy will head the inquiry into the circumstances leading to the death of Jayalalithaa on December 5 last year after 75 days of treatment at corporate Apollo Hospitals.
Jayalalithaa was admitted to Apollo Hospitals for fever and dehydration on September 22, 2016. After a prolonged hospitalisation, she had died on December 5, 2016 following a cardiac arrest.
