A man has recently approached the Madras High Court seeking permission to sit on an indefinite fast demanding disclosure of former CM Jayalalithaa's Will.

The bench of Justice GK Ilanthiraiyan on Monday heard the petitioner and directed the Government to check if any representations made by the petitioner were pending before the Collector or other concerned authorities.

The petitioner, Soundararajan submitted that he had been providing certain services for the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu Late Jayalalithaa, in that he had been booking newly constructed villas in the late CM's land.

He further submitted that after the death of the former CM, people who had paid amounts for booking homes had started insistence on repayment. When this issue was taken up with Mrs VK Sasikala, a close associate of the late CM, she assured the petitioner that Jayalalithaa had executed several wills in his favour and that those were systematically registered at Sub Registrar's office in Adyar and Velachery. 

He submitted that the contents of the will have not been made public so far and though he had filed many RTIs in this regard, the same had not been answered yet. 

Thus, he had approached the court to direct the Director General of Prosecution to look into the matter and grant necessary permission for conducting continuous fasting.

Case Title: D Soundararajan v Director General of Prosecution and others

Case No: WP No. 25066 of 2022
