On Monday, when the Justice Arumughaswamy Commission of Inquiry probing the circumstances leading to former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s death, completed a year, nine persons, including doctors, technicians and a bank manager were cross-examined.

Of the 11 summoned, nine appeared and were questioned by N. Raja Senthoor Pandian, the advocate representing Jayalalithaa’s long-time aide, V.K. Sasikala.

He said that the session confirmed the video clip submitted by Dr. Sivakumar showing Jayalalithaa and two others was authentic. Dr. Archana confirmed that her voice was among those recorded in the video at Apollo Hospitals on September 27, 2016, he added. Ms. Sasikala was present when Jayalalithaa was being taken to the hospital and she kept talking to Jayalalithaa. He claimed that Dr. Snehasri said Jayalalithaa was “not unconscious” when the former visited Poes Garden.

He added Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam, Health Minister C. Vijaya Baskar and auditor S. Gurumurthy will be questioned soon.
