Jaya death : Probe panel  makes crucial observation on Apollo Hospitals

The Arumughaswamy Commission set up to probe the circumstances leading to the death of then chief minister J Jayalalithaa, alleges a motive behind the Apollo Hospitals seeking a stay into the probe. According to reports, the counter-affidavit filed by the commission in the Supreme Court today states about Apollo Hospitals’ plea that seeks stay on the probe into the death of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, has ‘motive’ in it.

The Supreme Court on 16 April 2019 stayed the proceedings of the Arumughaswamy commission to probe the death of Jayalalithaa at Apollo Hospitals in 2016. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was hearing the appeal of Apollo against the 4 April order of the Madras High Court rejecting its objection against the ongoing inquiry into the death of the AIADMK leader at the hospital.
