Chennai, Dec 22 (IBNS) : two days after a video of late Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa lying on a hospital bed had surfaced, an inquiry committee, constituted to probe the former Chief Minister's death,  on Friday summoned jailed AIADMK leader V  Sasikala, Apollo Hospitals Chairman and Vice President.

According to media reports, the committee, headed by a retired High Court judge,  asked the three to respond to the summons within 15 days.

Prathap Reddy, Apollo Hospitals Chairman, had on December 16 revealed that Jayalalithaa was in a critical state when she was rushed to the hospital on September 22, 2016.

Jayalalithaa's death is fraught with controversies with a section of political leaders raising many questions and  many conspiracy theories doing rounds.

They have also alleged that  the hospitalisation procedure was not transparent.

Former Chief Minister O Panneerselvam, who visited Apollo hospital everyday to see Jayalalithaa, also raised doubts over her hospitalisation.

Ahead of the AIADMK merger, the Edapadi Palaniswami's government ordered a judicial probe into Jayalalithaa's death and a retired high court judge was appointed for the job.

So far, government doctors, Jayalalithaa's family members, former chief secretary Rama Mohana Rao and former adviser to the chief minister have been summoned for the probe.

A video of Jayalalithaa sitting on a hospital bed at the Apollo hospital was released by a TTV Dinakaran loyalist, P Vetrivel on the eve of the RK Nagar byelection.

The committee has been given a three month deadline to probe Jayalalithaa's death.
