Sasikala shot video of Jayalalithaa in hospital says T. T. V. Dhinakaran

Chennai: AIADMK leader T. T. V. Dhinakaran, who was sidelined, said on Monday that he was ready to hand over any of the investigating agencies including the CBI. Dhinakaran said that the video has not been released so far as Jayalalitha was in Nightie. The statement by Dhinakaran came after the opposition demanded a CBI inquiry into Jayalalithaa death, referring to the statement of a minister by the opposition, and a CBI probe into her death. A state minister had recently said that AIADMK leaders lied about Jayalalithaa’s health during her hospital stay.

Dhinakaran said, ‘Amma (Jayalalitha) lost weight. This video was shot by my aunt (Sasikala) herself. You all know that no one has seen Amma in Nightie, no official has even seen it. When the former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi came to see him after the accident in 1989, he had kept his clothes in full. He always maintained that dignity. “He said that Jayalalithaa’s video was shot in Lose Nightie at that time when she was transferred to a room from the ICU of Apollo Hospital. According to Dhinakaran, when the opposition had earlier expressed doubts about Jayalalithaa’s treatment and death, Sasikala herself had suggested, we should demand a judicial inquiry into the matter.

He said, ‘He had suggested that we can ask for a judicial inquiry ourselves where we can submit the video. If we now release the video, its authenticity will be discussed. So we are ready to hand over it to the CBI or Interpol on the appropriate forum. We are not afraid of anything. “On the order of setting up an inquiry commission headed by a retired judge of the High Court of Edappadi K. Palaniswami, Dhinakaran said that it is an attempt to remove the suspicion of the Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam who has The first case was skeptical. O. Panneerselvam had earlier sought the investigation of Jayalalithaa’s death. Dhinakaran said that the commission to investigate the matter should be chaired by a senior current judge, not a retired judge.
