Chennai, December 29

Unhappy over the secrecy kept about the 75 days long  treatment, The Madras High Court has raised question as to  :Why can’t we order exhumation of the body of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.”

The High Court in this connection on  Thursday issued a notice to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ,  state and central governments and others.

J. Jayalalithaa,  was declared to have died on December 5 after 75 days of hospitalisation, a vacation bench of the court said, “Even we have our doubts about that.”

The vacation bench comprising Justice S Vaidyanathan and Justice Parthiban, hearing a PIL of AIADMK party worker PA Joseph, said: “We also saw in newspapers that the chief minister was recovering, and that she was eating, signing papers and even conducting meetings. And then suddenly she was dead.”

Pointing out that no revenue division officer (RDO) had seen the body, neither were there any medical records furnished, the bench asked, “Why not, at least after her death, some proof was given.”

The PIL filed by AIADMK cadre Joseph wants high court to appoint a committee comprising three retired judges of the Supreme Court to go into the medical records relating to treatment given to Jayalalithaa.
