The Madras High Court on Tuesday directed Tamil Nadu's Additional Advocate General to seek information from the government on Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa's health.
Jayalalithaa was admitted to Apollo Hospitals on September 22 with fever and dehydration. The hospital, on Monday, had said that her situation continued to improve and should remain warded for a few more days because of the infection.
Social activist Traffic Ramaswamy had filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the Madras High Court seeking the real status of Jayalalithaa's health.
The court also observed that people were anxious to know about the chief minister's health.
Traffic Ramaswamy sought to know whether Jayalalithaa was in sound health to take important decisions and conduct meetings with officials and ministers.
