Two doctors on Thursday appeared before the one-man inquiry commission probing the death of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.

Dr. Narayan Babu, Dean of Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital and Dr. Mayilvahana​​n appeared before the Commission of Inquiry headed by Justice A Arumughaswamy (65), a retired judge of the Madras High Court.

Madurai-based DMK functionary P Saravanan, who recently submitted his petition, including an affidavit, also deposed before the Commission.

Sources said the doctors appeared based on summons issued to them and they replied to questions raised by the judge.

The State Government appointed Justice Arumughaswamy Commission of Inquiry to go into the circumstances leading to Jayalalithaa’s death. The Commission would inquire into the circumstances and situation leading to her hospitalisation and treatment provided to her during her stay in the hospital till her demise.

The former Chief Minister was admitted to the Apollo Hospitals in Chennai on September 22 last year and passed away on December 5.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Saravanan said he brought to the panel’s notice alleged discrepancies in press releases and the final discharge summary of the hospital where Jayalalithaa received treatment. ‘I will give details about Jaya’s thumb impression nominating the AIADMK candidate for the Thiruparankundram by-election. The fingerprint did not have life,’ Saravanan, who unsuccessfully contested in the by-poll, said.​
