Ramadoss for CBI probe into Jayalalithaa’s death

Cheni, Feb 9: PMK leader S. Ramadoss on Thursday demanded a CBI probe into the death of then Tamil du Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa.

He was reacting to a statement by acting Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam on setting up a panel headed by a Supreme Court judge to investigate the circumstances that led to Jayalalithaa’s death on December 5.

Ramadoss said in a statement that the Supreme Court had held earlier that it would appoint a sitting judge to probe issues of tiol security and not other issues.

He suggested that the correct approach would be to register a case by the Tamil du government and handing it over to the Central Bureau of Investigation. Jayalalithaa died on December 5 after being admitted in Apollo Hospitals for 75 days. (IANS)
