Jayalalithaa had spent 75 days at the hospital, before passing away on December 5, 2016. After a prolonged furore surrounding the secrecy about her hospitalisation, the Government formed the one-man enquiry commission on September 24, 2017. The commission was originally due to submit its final report on December 24, 2017 had its term extended by the State government. Over 50 individuals have deposed before the commission so far and cross-examination by VK Sasikala’s counsel Raja Senthoor Pandian is also underway simultaneously.
