The Supreme court put a hold on the investigation into the death of former chief minister of Tamil Nadu and former AIADMK chief, J Jayalalithaa. The supreme court ordered the commission to put the investigation on hold after the Apollo hospital challenged the summons to its doctors and the demand for the hospital records in regard to the death of AIADMK chief.

The Apollo hospital approached the Apex court after getting the objections rejected by the high court. On April 4, the Madras High Court rejected the plea filed by the hospitals objecting the ongoing probe into the death of J Jayalalithaa.

Earlier, the Apollo hospitals challenged the inquiry made by the AIADMK leaders into the death of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa. The hospital sought the direction of Supreme court to put on hold the proceeding of the court. However, the Tamil Nadu government has objected the stay of supreme court claiming that 90 percent of the investigation is completed.

The former chief minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa died on December 5, 2016, after being treated at Chennai’s Apollo hospital for 75 days.

The AIADMK-led state government set up an inquiry commission in September 2017 to probe the circumstances leading to her death. The commission was headed by retired High Court Judge Justice A Arumughaswamy.

Taking the note of circumstance that led to the death of AIADMK chief, DMK leaders have demanded that the matter should be investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

AIADMK is the ruling party in Tamil Nadu since 2001. J Jayalalithaa has served six-time chief minister of the state.
