V Divaharan, brother of jailed AIADMK leader V K Sasikala, dropped a bombshell on Wednesday when he said that former chief minister J Jayalalithaa had passed away on December 4, 2016.
The administration of Apollo Hospitals, where she was treated, had announced her death only the following day fearing for the safety of the hospital, he alleged at a public meeting at Mannargudi in Tiruvarur. Divaharan, who was speaking at a public meeting organised as part of the birth centenary celebrations of AIADMK founder MG Ramachandran claimed that ‘Amma’ had passed away exactly at 5.15pm on December 4, 2016 and that he reached the hospital the same night after receiving the information. “Even then, Amma was kept on ventilator. When I inquired with Reddy, he asked me to ensure the safety and security of the hospital. Only then could he declare (her death)”, Divaharan said.
Minutes later Apollo Hospitals issued a statement denying Divaharan’s claims. “It is unfortunate that unnecessary confusion is being created based on certain misinformation about the date and time of the demise of our former chief minister Selvi J Jayalalithaa, who had expired on December 5, 2016,” the four-paragraph statement said. Jayalalithaa, who was admitted to the hospital on September 22, 2016, suffered a cardiac arrest on December 4.
