Madras HC thinking over the option of exhuming Jayalalithaa's body to clear mystery surrounding her death
Hearing a petition filed by an AIADMK party worker PA Joseph, who wanted the Madras High Court to appoint a committee of the retired Supreme Court judges to go into late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's medical records, the Court asked why an order cannot be passed to exhume her body.

The High Court issued a notice to the Prime Minister Modi, state and others. The High Court while echoing the sentiments of the petitioner said, "Even we have our doubts about that," the Times of India reported.

The vacation bench comprising Justice S Vaidyanathan and Justice Parthiban added, "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."

The court also asked why details regarding Jayalalithaa's health post her death were not provided. The next hearing of the case has been scheduled on January 9.

Jayalalithaa had died on December 5 after suffering a cardiac arrest on December 4. She was initially admitted to the Apollo Hospitals in Chennai on September 22 with complaints of fever and dehydration. Later, she was also treated for lung infection.

Meanwhile, in another important political development in Tamil Nadu, Jayalalithaa's close aide Sasikala has been appointed AIADMK's General Secretary. Today, the party's general council unanimously passed a resolution regarding her apppointment.
