All CCTVs were off during Jayalalithaa's hospitalisation: Apollo chairman Prathap Reddy

Mar 22:During the 75-day hospitalisation of former AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa, all CCTVs cameras were switched off as she was the only patient in ICU, said Apollo Hospitals Chairman Prathap C Reddy on Thursday. Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a press conference of the Apollo International Colorectal Symposium 2018 in Chennai, Reddy said that the hospital had submitted all relevant documents to the Justice A Arumughaswamy Commission, which is probing Jayalalithaa's hospitalisation and death.
"Unfortunately they (CCTVs) were switched off. Jayalalithaa got admitted and one ICU was completely occupied only by her. So they removed the footage because they did not want everyone to be watching," Reddy said.
The remarks come after jailed AIADMK leader Sasikala, in an affidavit to the commission last week, said the former chief minister had refused to go to the hospital after she collapsed in the washroom of her Chennai home on September 22, 2016. Sasikala has also said that Jayalalithaa was videographed in a lucid state four times in hospital and senior AIADMK leaders, including O Panneerselvam and M Thambidurai, met her. However, both leaders have said they were denied access to Jayalalithaa in her three months in hospital.
Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on September 22, 2016. She suffered a cardiac arrest on December 4 and was declared dead the following day. Agencies
