All hell broke loose outside AIADMK’s office in Chennai on Wednesday as expelled MP Sasikala Pushpa’s lawyers and husband were attacked by party members. 

Sasikala Pushpa’s husband Lingeswara Thilagan and lawyers had arrived there to submit nomination papers for the post of party general secretary at a meeting called to decide the successor for late former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa, reported ANI.

The staff refused to accept the papers saying senior staff was not present and soon after, angry members attacked Sasikala’s husband and started beating them. Later, police rescued them and took them away.

Sasikala Pushpa was expelled from the AIADMK after an altercation with DMK MP Tiruchi Siva at the Delhi airport earlier in July.

After Jayalalithaa’s death, she had moved the Supreme Court seeking a CBI probe or a judicial investigation by an apex court judge into the CM’s death.

In her petition, Pushpa has alleged that Jayalalithaa’s death was “suspicious” as her actual medical condition was not disclosed, no one was allowed to visit her, her funeral photographs showed embalming marks and everything from her hospitalisation to her death “was kept under wraps”
