The Supreme Court on Nov 27 rejected the plea filed by a woman claiming to be the daughter of late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
In her plea, the 37-year-old woman, who has reportedly been identified as Amrutha has demanded a DNA test to prove that Jayalalithaa is her biological mother. However, the apex court has rejected her plea and said she could approach the high court for legal remedies.
A bench of Justices MB Lokur and Deepak Gupta refused to allow Amrutha’s plea to conduct DNA test to prove her parentage.
According to media reports, the Bengaluru woman had claimed that she was born at Jayalalithaa’s residence in Mylapur on August 14, 1980.
Jayalalithaa’s two cousins, who are also woman’s aunts, LS Lalitha and Ranjani Ravindranath, are co-petitioners in her claim.
Earlier, the woman has also sought cremation of Jayalalithaa’s body, which was buried after her death last year.
