Controversies around Jayalalithaa refuses to die down. A man in Tamil Nadu, claiming to be Jayalalithaa's 'real son' has filed a complaint with the state's secretary that his mother was murdered. Krishnamurthy, a resident of Erode has filed a complaint with the Chief secretary of Tamil Nadu claiming to be Jayalalithaa's son and staked claim to all her properties.
According to a report in the India Today, Krishnamurthy, in his letter had alleged that he feared for his life and had not revealed his identity earlier but now he wanted to declare that he was the rightful heir. "My mother wanted to introduce me as her son to the world and knowing this an argument broke out between her and Sasikala. She pushed my mother down the stairs on 22nd September and killed her," he is said to have claimed in the complaint.
Krishnamurthy has also claimed that he lived with Jayalalithaa's friend, Vanithamani's house and had visited Jayalalithaa at Poes Garden in September 2016, days before she was admitted to the Apollo hospital. Krishnamurthy was seen displaying what looked like a photoshopped picture showing him standing next to Jayalalithaa as 'proof' of his claim.
