Supreme court rejects plea of woman claiming to be Jayalalithaa's daughter
The Supreme Court has rejected a plea filed a Karnataka woman who claimed to be Jayalalithaa's daughter. The court directed the lady who sought a DNA test to be conducted to approach the Karnataka High Court. Earlier, a 37-year-old Bengaluru woman has petitioned the Supreme Court, claiming herself to be the biological daughter of late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa. An apex court bench, headed by Justice Madan B. Lokur, is expected to decide whether or not to admit the petition. In her petition filed on November 22, Amrutha claims that she was adopted and raised by Jayalalithaa's elder sister Shylaja and her husband Sarathy. She also said that just before the death of Sarathy Amrutha learnt the truth about her birth after Jayalalithaa's death on December 5 last year.
