FIR filed against MLA Vetrivel for releasing Jayalalithaa's video


An FIR was filed against Tamil Nadu MLA P Vetrivel on Wednesday for releasing the video of former state chief minister J Jayalalithaa in the hospital a day before RK Nagar bypolls. The FIR was filed at New Washermenpet Police Station.

EC had earlier taken immediate note on all the television news channels and Newspapers to stop any further telecast of this video saying that it may directly/indirectly have an impact on the upcoming elections.

Tamil Nadu's chief electoral officer Rajesh Lakhoni told reporters that the television channels have been asked to immediately stop airing the clip.

The video was released by TTV Dhinakaran supporter MLA P Vetrivel, who gave up his seat in RK Nagar for Jaya's comeback.

However, Vetrivel after releasing the video had said,''Election is a very small issue, this is much larger. We will show more videos of Amma".

He further said, ''False that no one met Jayalalithaa in hospital, there's video proof. We waited for days before releasing it but released it now as we were left with no option. Inquiry Commission hasn't summoned us yet, if it does we'll submit evidence to them.''

Meanwhile, the Apollo Hospital has released a statement that the video is not official, and they have no clue about any such footage from the hospital.

Jayalalithaa was in the hospital for three months last year until she died on December 5. Meanwhile, the Apollo hospital had said that Jayalalithaa was unconscious when she was brought on September 22.
