TAMIL NAIDU

Madras High Court today rejected the petition of Apollo hospital seeking stay on the Arumughaswamy Commission proceedings , which is probing the death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, until a medical board is formed.

The next date of hearing is 15 February.

In its petition, the hospital had alleged that the Jayalalithaa death probe panel is going beyond its brief.

The Apollo Hospitals had filed the petition.

Jayalalithaa was in Apollo Hospitals here for 75 days in 2016 before she died there due to cardiac arrest on December 5, 2016.
