Bengaluru: The Madras High Court (HC) has directed the Regional Officer of Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) and Superintendent of the Central Prison in Parappana Agrahara in Bengaluru to furnish the original finger prints of former Chief Minister and AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa, by December 8.

The directive from the court came in response to a petition by Dr P Saravanan challenging the election of AIADMK candidate AK Bose from the Tirupparangundram Assembly constituency in the by-elections held in November 2016.

The petitioner contended that the left thumb impression of Jayalalithaa had been obtained in Form A and B of the election documents without her consent and knowledge, while she was convalescing at Apollo hospital in Chennai.

Election Commission in accepting the nomination papers of Bose had materially affected his election prospects, Saravanan said.

Jayalalithaa had served as a convict in Prappana Agrahara prison and hence the court asked to produce the thumb impression, if any, obtaining while receing her as a convict.

Similarly, the judge also directed the Regional Officer of UIDAI to produce Jayalalithaa’s thumb impression, if any obtained at the time of issuing Aadhaar card to her, to the court by that date. In similar lines, the court asked the Regional Officer of UIDAI to produce Jayalalithaa’s thumb impression, if any obtained at the time of issuing Aadhaar card to her by December 8.

The orders issued by Justice P Velmurugan of madras HC comes in response to a petition filed by Dr P Saravanan challenging the election of AIADMK candidate AK Bose last November.
