With the Justice Arumugasamy Commission demanding, a petition has been filed by Apollo hospitals that a medical board of 21 experts from all across the globe, be set up for helping the panel to examine the kind of treatment that was given to J Jayalalithaa, former chief minister of Tamilnadu. The circumstances that led to the death of Jayalalitha are being probed by the commission.
The hospital said that serious errors had crept into the deposition of doctors, in the affidavit filed on Friday, that had been recorded by the typist of the commission.
For instance, ‘Enterococcus bacteria’ became ‘endocarditis bacteria’ and ‘intubation’ has been recorded as ‘incubation’.
Apollo hospitals said in its petition to the commission that such errors would be fatal to the own understanding of the commission of the circumstances and facts surrounding the death of the former chief minister.
Though the Tamil Nadu government has given its nod to the commission for having the team of four doctors for assisting it has not been constituted yet according to the hospital.
