Amrutha’s claim dismissed

The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court dismissed the claim of S. Amrutha who claimed to be the biological daughter of former Chief Minister Jayalalitha.

None of the witnesses on the side of the petitioner were alive and hence there was no way the court would be able to conduct an enquiry.Justice S. Vaidyanathan who pronounced the verdict, observed that Amrutha did not provide documentary proof to support her claim, no photographs were produced and none of the witnesses were alive. The judge further stated that a DNA test could have been conducted only if strong grounds had been established. Merely stating that Jayalalitha was affectionate towards the petitioner does not hold ground.
