NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a plea challenging the enquiry commission constituted to probe former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's death.

The plea was filed by a person named P.A. Joseph, who had sought for a fresh enquiry  by means of passage of a resolution in the State Assembly.

On that note, he had alleged that the current enquiry commission was “unconstitutional”, and claimed that it was set up without a resolution from the State Assembly.

Earlier on October 30, a probe relating to the death of former the Tamil Nadu chief minister begun.


In September, Retired Madras High Court judge, Justice Arumugasamy, was appointed to head the probe into the death of Jayalalithaa, following Chief Minister E Palaniswamy's announcement in this regard.

The Tamil Nadu government had set up the inquiry commission in September to investigate Jayalalithaa's death. Report is to be submitted in three months.

This decision of the state government comes after Tamil Nadu's Minister for Forests Dindigul Sreenivasan revealed that all ministers of the state had lied to the people about hospitalisation and death of the former AIADMK general secretary and said that only former confidant V K Sasikala and her family had access to see ailing Jayalalithaa.
