Days after Madras High Court ordered arrest of the man who claimed to be the son of former Tamil Nadu chief minister late J. Jayalalithaa, Chennai police on Friday, has taken into custody the 28-year year old from Dindigul bus terminus. The court had ordered his arrest last week, saying that he not only cheated the court, but has also forged documents. Acting on court’s order the central crime branch has arrested J Krishnamurthy who had been moving from one place to another for the past one week despite an order of his arrest was directed. As soon as Krishnamurthy was spotted by the police on the bus terminus, he was bundled and put in a police vehicle that took him to a secluded place. He was later brought to Chennai.
The direction of his arrest came after Justice R Mahadevan peruse the report filed by the Crime branch official. As per the report, petitioner J Krishnamoorthy was found out to be the son of Vasanthamani and not Jayalalithaa, as falsely claimed by him. Court also informed that old stamp papers were purchased from a stamp vendor and the documents were forged. As per Krishnamoorthy petition, he was born to late Jayalalithaa and Telugu actor Shoban Babu. He had even submitted some documents that consisted a deed of adoption. He had sought court’s help to declare him as her son and also make him entitled to Jayalalithaa’s properties, including Poes Garden home.
