Woman says she is Jayalalithaa's daughter, wants DNA test

A bench of justices M B Lokur and Deepak Gupta also refused to allow the plea of the woman to conduct DNA test for the objective of proving her parentage. The woman has demanded a DNA test to prove her claim.

Arguing for her, Ms. Jaising said the petitioner, who claims to have been born in 1980, has "fond memories" of Ms. Jayalalithaa.

Meanwhile, when the English daily approached AIADMK spokesperson Satyan Rajan, he said that they do not have any idea about Amrutha or the petition that she has filed. Krishnamoorthy had submitted some documents, including a "deed of adoption" and sought the court's help to declare him as her son and hence, entitled to her properties, including the Poes Garden residence.

She says her recent efforts to establish her maternity were thwarted by Sasikala's supporters, and her representations to President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, individual Supreme Court judges and the CBI brought no results. She claimed Sarathy told her that she was Jayalalithaa's daughter in March, just before his death.

Now, The Supreme Court has refused to entertain the petition filed by a Bengaluru woman.

She also urged the court that the mortal remains of her biological mother be exhumed so that family could perform her last rights in a tradtional ways. When Amrutha's father's and Shylaja's husband Sarathy was on his death bed, he confessed that he was in a relationship with Jayalalithaa and that he is Amrutha's biological parent. Shylaja's claim that she was a sister had been contested by other members of the family. The woman named as Amrutha aka Manjula had reportedly sought an exhumation (the action of a corpse) of Jayalalithaa's body for DNA test.
