According to sources privy to the 55-page, 99-paragraph affidavit filed on March 12, Dr. Sivakumar phoned Vijay Kumar Reddy, husband of Apollo Hospitals' vice-chairperson Preetha Reddy.
She fell unconscious in washroom on the first floor of her Poes Garden residence in Chennai after having brushed her teeth, said Sasikala. After lifting her, she was taken to the Apollo Hospitals. "She called out to me for help".
VK Sasikala said that despite being unwell, Jayalalithaa didn't listen to advice and refused to go to the hospital. Jayalalithaa had fever and looked jaded and despite insistence to visit a doctor, Jayalalithaa refused saying she will be alright if she got some rest, Sasikala wrote in her affidavit. The affidavit retraced some crucial phases in the life of the late CM particularly the last one and a half years.It says that since Jayalalithaa came out of Parppana Agrahara prison where she was incarcerated after being convicted in the disproportionate assets case, Jayalalithaa was ailing.
Sasikal also told about the doctors who treated Jayalalithaa between November 2014 and September 2016.
Shortly afterwards, Dr. K.S. Sivakumar, a relative of Sasikala, entered the room.
Jayalalithaa was unwell on September 22, the day she was hospitalised. Doubts have been raised over the events leading to Jayalalithaa's hospitalisation and her death by various quarters with opposition parties including the DMK demanding a CBI probe. He had told the media that Jayalalithaa had asked the vehicle to be taken to her residence instead of her chambers at the Secretariat following the metro inauguration on September 21.
"At that time, Jayalalithaa saw Veeraperumal and Perumalsamy, her Personal Security Officers". She had told them that she was fine and the doctors had asked her to stay a few more days.
"On October 22, 2016, Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao saw Akka through a glass partition".
There is a new disclosure in the death case of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa.
However, the Supreme Court upheld the trial court order in 2017, but Jayalalithaa had died by then.

Sasikala says this was part of Jayalalithaa's efforts to document her health. Even details of her food consumption were in it, and it has all been submitted to the Commission. Then Chief Secretary P. Ramamohana Rao; Advocate General R. Muthukumarasamy, advisor to the government Sheela Balakrishnan; and CM's secretaries A. Ramalingam and K.N. Venkataramanan attended it, says Sasikala's affidavit.
