Chennai sources have made a statement that high drama prevailed in the Poes Garden area on Sunday morning as Deepa Jayakumar attempted to enter the Veda Nilayam bungalow of her late aunt and former Chief Minister Jayalalitha.
She alleged that the ruling AIADMK (Amma) Deputy General Secretary T.T.V. Dhinakaran's supporters prevented her from entering the bungalow, where Jayalalitha lived for nearly 40 years.
Meanwhile heavy posse of police was deployed in the vicinity. Some
journalists were allegedly injured in a scuffle. It was stated that Jayalalitha
had not left behind a will. After Jayalalitha’s death, her close aide Sasikala
continued to live in the bungalow.
After Sasikala was jailed, Mr. Dhinakaran had occasionally used the house to conduct meetings with ministers and senior leaders. It was also stated that for the past two months the house was unoccupied but guarded by private security personnel.
