New Delhi:

The Supreme Court dismissed on Thursday a petition filed by expelled AIADMK MP Sasikala Pushpa seeking a probe into former chief minister Jayalalithaa's death.

Sasikala had moved the apex court seeking a CBI probe or a judicial investigation by a SC judge into the matter in December last year.

In her petition, the MP had alleged that Jayalalithaa’s death was “suspicious” as her actual medical condition was not disclosed, no one was allowed to visit her, her funeral photographs showed embalming marks and everything from her hospitalisation to her death “was kept under wraps”.

The Rajya Sabha MP had also sought directions to the Centre, the Tamil Nadu government and Apollo Hospital, where Jayalalithaa was hospitalised, to disclose details of her health report and treatment in a sealed cover to the apex court.
