Madras High Court orders arrest of a man claiming to be Jayalalitha's son
On Monday, the Madras High Court ordered the state police to arrest a man who had 'fraudulently' claimed to be the son of the late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

A bench headed by Justice R Mahadevan directed the police to arrest J Krishnamurthy, who had claimed to be the son of the late CM.

"He has not only cheated the court but also prepared forged documents," the court said. The court has also directed the state police to take appropriate action against him in accordance with law.

Krishnamurthy had approached the court and claimed to be the son of the late CM in order to be entitled for a share in her properties. He had also submitted documents including a deed of adoption that 'legally' declared him Jayalalithaa's son.

But on closer examination, the court found the documents to be forged.

"The inspector of police, CCB ( Central Crime Branch), submitted a report in a sealed cover. The petitioner, who is son of Krishnamurthy and Vasanthamani and not the alleged son as falsely claimed by him. It is also alleged that old stamp papers were purchased from one Subramanian, a stamp vendor and fabricated and the name of former chief minister was written as Komalavalli alias Jayalalithaa. Only with an ulterior motive that the petitioner came to this court. The report filed by police is placed on record. Police are directed to secure the person connected thereto and proceed in accordance with law and report before this court on April 10, 2017," the CCB report said.

The CCB had scrutinised the documents which had photographs of Jayalalithaa and Shoban Babu. They also had signature of former chief minister and Jayalalithaa's mentor M G Ramachandran.

In a sealed cover submitted to the court, CCB Inspector of police, affirmed that the claimant's biological parents are in Tiruppur.
