Plea for fresh probe

An Advocate filed a Special Leave Petition in the Supreme Court praying for the appointment of a fresh Commission headed by three Supreme Court Judges to conduct an enquiry into the mysterious death of former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa  at the Apollo hospital on December 5th 2016.

He said that she was admitted for fever and dehydration on 22nd September 2016 and after that every thing was hushed up and nobody was allowed to meet her.He said that there is every possibility of influence, bias and pressure to be exerted on s one man commission appointed by the State Government and it cannot be expected to do an independent inquiry. Moreover he feared that there could be tampering of records. Hence he challenged the appointment of a one man commission and prayed for the appointment of a fresh Commission headed by 3 Supreme Court Judges.
