Dr.Prathap Reddy,Chairman of Apollo hospitals disclosed that all the CCTV cameras in the ICU were switched off during former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s 75 day treatment at the hospital. He said that as soon as she was admitted,her attendants switched off all the cameras and access to the ICU was closed. All patients were shifted to another ICU.
He further stated that no visitors were allowed to meet her. Dr.Reddy:s revelation contradicts the statement made by Sasikala that some officials and ministers met Jayalalithaa. She also said that Senior leaders O.Paneerselvam and M.Thambidurai had met Jayalalithaa in the hospital. However both leaders denied this and insisted that they never met their leader any time during her hospitalization.
