SC junks pleas for probe into Jaya death

The Supreme Court dismissed on Thursday petitions filed by rebel AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa and an NGO seeking court-monitored CBI probe into the death of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.
Abench of Justices P C Ghose and Rohinton F Nariman refused to entertain PILs saying the issue is already pending in the Madras High Court.
Sasikala's counsel, however, told the bench that she had filed the petition much before a plea was filed in the HC on CBI inquiry into the death of Jayalalithaa. He said the former CM died in a “mysterious“ circumstances and an independent probe was needed to find out the truth.
“She was recovering well in hospital and was to be discharged but all of a sudden she was declared dead. Complete secrecy was maintained on her heath condition and no one was allowed to meet her, giving rise to suspicion of foul play ,“ he said.
