Madras HC orders notice to TN government on plea for Jaya’s cremation

The Madras High Court on Friday ordered notice to the Tamil Nadu government and the Corporation of Chennai while admitting the plea filed by a woman claiming to be the daughter of late Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa.

S. Amrutha approached the court with a plea to exhume Jayalalithaa’s body for cremation and performing the rituals as per her Vaishnava Iyengar Brahmin community tradition.

The court also impleaded J. Deepak and his sister J. Deepa – the two children of Jayalalithaa’s brother – as respondents in the case.

The court asked whether Apollo Hospital has the blood samples of Jayalalithaa where she was admitted and died last year.
