The affidavit retraced some crucial phases in the life of the late CM particularly the last one and a half years.It says that since Jayalalithaa came out of Parppana Agrahara prison where she was incarcerated after being convicted in the disproportionate assets case, Jayalalithaa was ailing.

Jayalalithaa was admitted to Apollo Hospital on the night of September 22, 2016 and passed away on December 5, 2016. Sasikala said she rushed to her help and helped her get to the bed where she fainted.

Sasikala, in an affidavit filed before Justice A Arumughaswamy Commission, who is now investigating the death of Jayalalithaa, said, "Jayalalithaa was unwell and called for help when she was in the bathroom on the first floor of her Poes Garden residence".

Sasikala has said that she took Jayalalithaa to the hospital even though the former AIADMK chief did not want to be taken for treatment, The Hindu reported. On the way to the hospital, Jayalalithaa regained consciousness and asked where is she being taken.

Two ambulances from Apollo hospital were called and Jayalalithaa was carried from her bedroom in an unconscious state on a stretcher. Sasikala also claimed that former Tamil Nadu CM's deteriorating health was the reason that she was rushed to the hospital.

Despite receiving bail, the case continued to be a source of constant stress for the then Chief Minister.
