The CM is said to have been stressed about her conviction and imprisonment is a disproportionate assets case and her sugar levels also had been fluctuating. After lifting her, she was taken to the Apollo Hospitals.

"She called out to me for help".

In the affidavit filed before the Justice Arumughaswamy Commission which is probing Jayalalithaa's death, Sasikala said that she was watching a serial at around 4.20 pm. It seemed like when Jayalalithaa threw Natarajan and 40 of his family members out, including Sasikala, he was not ready to let it go. The videos taken, Sasikala says were taken with Jayalalithaa's permission in an effort to document her health says the affidavit.

Dr KS Sivakumar, a relative of Sasikala, had examined Jayalalithaa twice on the same day and advised her to go to the hospital, but the latter refused.

Following his death, Sasikala was granted 15-day parole and she came out of the Parappana Agrahara Prison in Bengaluru and headed to Thanjavur in central Tamil Nadu where Natarajan's body was taken to his native village.

"At that time, Jayalalithaa saw Veeraperumal and Perumalsamy, her Personal Security Officers". The treatment given to Jayalalithaa, the affidavit says, was on the advice of doctors from Apollo as well as AIIMS.

Sasikala had given the Commission a list of 20 different doctors from Chennai, Mumbai, and Kolkata, who had earlier treated Jayalalithaa.

Sasikala said she had given a handwritten note directing what kind of issues AIADMK MPs should rake up in the winter session of Parliament, a copy of which is in her room in Poes Garden. Four videos have been submitted to the Commission. On September 21, according to the source, Jayalalithaa had felt unwell while inaugurating a new corridor of the Chennai Metro Rail. Doctor has asked me to stay for a few days. If she hadn't fainted they wouldn't have her in the hospital, she has reportedly mentioned in her statement. They had a meeting on Cauvery and madam herself has dictated and made correction in facts.

In the affidavit, Sasikala is learnt to have made charges against current Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam, accusing him of "surrendering" to the BJP.

The details of the affidavit match the statement given by the former Chief Minister's driver. She attended her last public event on September 21. I rushed towards her and supported her.
