An inquiry commission probing the death of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa, will look into the circumstances and situation leading to her hospitalisation last year and subsequent treatment, the government has said.
The commission shall submit its report in three months, it said.
A public (SC) department Government Order (GO) dated September 27 said Tamil Nadu governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao, in exercise of the powers conferred under relevant sections of the Commission of Inquiry Act, 1952 (Central Act LX of 1952), issued the following terms of reference of the commission.
"To inquire into the circumstances and situation leading to the hospitalisation of the late Hon'ble chief minister (Jayalalithaa) on 22.9.2016 and subsequent treatment provided till her unfortunate demise" on December 5, 2016, it said.
The state government had on Monday announced setting up of the inquiry commission to probe and submit a report on the death of Jayalalithaa.
The probe was a key demand of the then rebel AIADMK faction led by O Panneerselvam as a pre-condition for the merger of his camp with that of chief minister K Palanisamy.
