Jayalalitha death case: Probing panel’s counsel implicates health secretary, hospital

The Standing Counsel has alleged that at times the Health Secretary behaved like the spokesperson of Apollo Hospital which hints at collusion in relation to the treatment of the late Chief Minister.

Probing panel’s counsel in the Jayalalitha death case has accused the Tamil Nadu Health Secretary, J Radhakrishnan and Apollo Hospital of collusion and conspiracy in medical treatment of former Tamil Nadu chief minister, late J Jayalalitha. The advocate has also accused former Chief Secretary Rama Mohana Rao of purposely giving false evidence.

The Counsel has stated in the petition that Apollo failed to provide angio treatment to Jayalalitha as suggested by three senior doctors. The relevant part of the petition reads as: “The medical evidence adduced so far against the Respondent No. 2 namely Apollo Hospital clearly established the fact that the Apollo Hospital failed to provide angio treatment in spite of the fact that three senior doctors hailing from various hospitals have suggested such a course. Thus, it is clear that failure to take Angio test or Angiogram in time has led to deterioration of her health, which is suggestive of collusion between Respondent no.1 [VK Sasikala] and 2 [Apollo] in a matter of treatment of former chief minister. There is also sufficient circumstantial evidence in this regard.

However, Apollo Hospital in its press statement has denied the allegations of the Standing Counsel claiming that no such suggestion was made by doctors mentioned in the petition. It said that only a single external doctor had suggested immediate angiogram which was not accepted by doctors in the discussion held later on.

The Standing Counsel has alleged that at times the Health Secretary behaved like the spokesperson of Apollo Hospital which hints at collusion in relation to the treatment of the late Chief Minister. The Counsel also alleged that J Radhakrishnan had given false statements to the Commission regarding the communications with the government on the procedure performed on Jayalalitha.

Apollo Hospital had a few days ago filed a petition before the Commission demanding that a team of 21 experts from across the globe be formed to examine the treatment given to Jayalalitha. The Hospital had alleged in its affidavit that serious errors were found in the statements of the doctors recorded by the Commission’s typist.
