File report on Jaya blood sample: Madras HC to Apollo

 Chennai, April 25: The Madras High Court on Wednesday ordered Apollo Hospital to submit a report on the blood samples of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J.Jayalalithaa by Thursday. The court’s order came as it heard a petition filed by S. Amrutha, who claims to be Jayalalithaa’s daughter. It fixed the next hearing for June 4. Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on September 22, 2016 and died on December 5 that year. Amrutha had approached the High Court for an order for DNA test to prove that she was Jayalalithaa’s daughter. The court had asked Apollo Hospital to file a report as to whether it has the blood samples of Jayalalithaa. (IANS)
