‘Am­rutha is not daugh­ter of Jaya’

The New Indian Express - - CHENNAI -

S AM­RUTHA (38) of Bengaluru, who claimed that she was the bi­o­log­i­cal daugh­ter of former Chief Min­is­ter J Jay­alalithaa, has mis­er­ably failed to establish the same, the Madras High Court ruled on Fri­day.

Since she could not establish that she was the bi­o­log­i­cal daugh­ter, there was no ques­tion of the court al­low­ing her to per­form the last rites for Jay­alalithaa as per Vaish­navite rit­u­als, Jus­tice S Vaidyanathan said.

The judge was dis­miss­ing a writ pe­ti­tion from Am­rutha, her rel­a­tives L S Lalitha and Ran­jani Ravin­dranath. The con­tention of Ad­vo­cate-Gen­eral Vi­jay Narayan, that Am­rutha was try­ing to de­fame the late Jay­alalithaa, could not be ruled out, the judge pointed out.
