Due to lack of state government reports, rumours started circulating about her health, with some people saying the 68-year-old leader had passed into a coma and was unlikely to recover.
The AIADMK IT cell today (October 1) said an Indian lady residing in France was booked for broadcasting false news about Jayalalithaa's death.
On September 29, Tamilachi had posted on Facebook: "I heard from reliable sources that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister had passed away two days ago and I'm sharing this info with extreme courage. RSS tried to threaten her using disproportionate assets case but she did not abide. Makes me wonder if this could be the reason for her death."
Based on the complaint from AIADMK IT Wing Chennai Police files an FIR against a lady for spreading rumours about TN CM Amma's health.
Jayalalithaa's long-time bitter rival M Karunanidhi, who heads the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), the other major party in Tamil Nadu, also urged people to put an end to the baseless rumours surrounding Jayalalithaa's health.
Meanwhile, a doctor from UK by the name of Richard John Beale, who is a Consultant Intensivist at the London Bridge Hospital, was flown in to check up on Jayalalithaa's health on Friday.
