Jayalalithaa's Medical Report Made Public by TN Govt to End 'Speculation'

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa passed away on December 5.

Chennai: The Tamil Nadu government on Monday made public the medical report of the late chief minister J Jayalalithaa to “put to rest speculation surrounding her hospitalisation, treatment and death”.

According to the report, Jayalalithaa had suffered a heart attack, had diabetes issues and needed prolonged life support.

The move assumes significance in the backdrop of doubts being raised from different quarters over the former AIADMK chief’s death on December 5.

The Tamil Nadu government had on Sunday rejected former chief minister and rebel AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam’s claims of foul play in the treatment of Jayalalithaa, an allegation which has been dismissed by state Health Minister C Vijayabaskar.

The opposition DMK, too, has approached the Madras High Court seeking a comprehensive probe into the death of Jayalalithaa.
