NEW DELHI: In a 55-page affidavit filed before the Justice A Arumughaswamy Commission, jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala has recounted what took place at former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s residence on September 22, 2016 before she was rushed to the hospital.
Sasikala has said that she took Jayalalithaa to the hospital even though the former AIADMK chief did not want to be taken for treatment, The Hindu reported. Sasikala said that Jayalalithaa was unwell and called for help when she was in the bathroom on the first floor of her Poes Garden residence. Sasikala said she rushed to her help and helped her get to the bed where she fainted.
Two ambulances from Apollo hospital were called to her residence and she was brought from her bedroom in an unconscious state on a stretcher. Sasikala has claimed that Jayalalithaa regained consciousness in the ambulance and questioned where she was being taken. She was informed that they were en route to the hospital.
She claims that Dr KS Sivakumar, a relative of Sasikala, had examined Jayalalithaa twice on the same day. She was advised to go to the hospital but the former Tamil Nadu CM refused to go.
