Madras High Court Dismisses Petition Seeking Photographs Of Jayalalithaa In Hospital

The Madras High Court on Thursday dismissed a petition seeking ‘real facts’ on the health of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, observing that the petition was meant for publicity.

The case came up for hearing before a bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice R Mahadevan said it was not a public interest petition. Adding that the petition was filed for publicity and for political reasons, the court said the petitioner seeking a photographic proof of Jayalalithaa from the hospital is also not justified.
