SC stays inquiry commission proceedings into Jayalalithaa’s death

The Supreme Court today stayed the proceedings of an inquiry commission set up to probe the death of then Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa at Apollo Hospitals in Chennai in 2016.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi was hearing the appeal of Apollo Hospitals against the April 4 order of the Madras High Court. 

The HC had rejected the hospital’s objection to the ongoing inquiry into the death of the AIADMK leader at the hospital.

The AIADMK-led state government had set up the inquiry commission to look into the circumstances leading to the death of Jayalalithaa on December 5, 2016 at Apollo Hospitals.
