In the latest development in the probe of the death of Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa, Apollo Hospital on Saturday made some shocking revelations about the matter.

According to media reports, the hospital management informed the enquiry commission that Inspector General of Police (Intelligence) K.N. Sathiyamurthy was among the four police officers who requested CCTV cameras be switched off during the hospitalisation of the Former Chief Minister.

The reports further said that A five-page affidavit was filed by the Apollo hospitals management. Apollo said, "the CCTV cameras in the corridors would be switched off when former TN CM Jayalalithaa was taken through the route and it would be switched on when she was back in the room."

Jayalalithaa died in Apollo hospital on December 5 in 2016 after prolonged illness. Ever since, there have been hints at foul play in the death pointing fingers at V.K. Sasikala, who was a close aide of the late Chief Minister and who lived with Jayalalithaa.

In August last year, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami announced that a judicial commission will probe the death of Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa and said her Poes Garden house will turn into a memorial, meeting the main demands of former Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam for the two AIADMK groups to merge.

While In December last year, the TTV Dinakaran Camp released Jayalalithaa’s video from Apollo Hospital ahead of RK Nagar Bypolls which were held last year.

The video shows that Jayalalithaa was on the path to recovery suggesting that Sasikala had no role to play in the former CM’s death.
