SC declines to entertain Amrutha plea claiming daughter of Jayalalithaa

The 37-year-old woman, who has been identified as Amrutha, has filed a petition in the Supreme Court and also demanded a DNA test to prove that Jayalalithaa is her biological mother.

Claiming she was born on 14 August, 1980 at the former chief minister's residence in Mylapur, Amrutha said that her birth was kept secret to avoid social stigma, and "uphold the dignity of the family as they belonged to a very religious, orthodox and cultured Brahmin family", the report added. She has also sought direction to exhume Jayalalithaa's body, which now rests at the Marina Beach.

She had claimed that whenever she tried meeting Jayalalitha, her efforts went in vain as Jayalalithaa's then aide Sasikala prevented her from it. The court, however, said the petitioner is at liberty to approach the high court. She said that earlier, she had written letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, President Ram Nath Kovind, also to CBI and the judges of the apex court regarding this, but did not get any response from them.

A Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Madan Lokur will decide on Monday whether to admit the petition, the report said.

In her petition, Amrutha says she was brought up as the daughter of Jayalalithaa's late sister Shylaja and that it was only after the former CM's demise that she came to know through her aunts - LS Lalitha and Ranjani Ravindranath - that she is Jayalalithaa's biological daughter. Shylaja's claim that she was a sister had been contested by other members of the family.
