"We have met the Governor and have given a petition. We have demanded that an investigation team should be set up and there should be an unbiased investigation. We have also urged the Governor to bring the issue to the notice of the President," Stalin told media after his meeting with the governor.
He also demanded the resignation of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and said, "It is a shame that still chief minister Palaniswami is holding to his post. He should resign immediately."
Stalin said that the Governor has assured appropriate steps on the petition and added, "The Kodanadu estate is a very important residence of former CM J Jayalalitha and thus the murder and robbery there is of great significance. The two people who had given all the information in the case have been taken into custody last night. The death of many people associated in the case has raised doubts on the way these people have died."
Former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa was admitted in Chennai's Apollo hospital on September 22, 2016, and after being treated in the hospital for 75 days, she breathed her last on December 5, 2016.
