A man by name J. Krishnamoorthy on Friday sought the Madras High Court’s intervention saying he was the son of late J.Jayalalithaa and Telugu actor Shoban Babu, born in 1985 but given in adoption to one MGR aide Vasanthamani in Erode.
The man went to the extent of filing "fabricated" documents before Justice R Mahadevan of the Madras high court on Friday, which intrigued the judge who said, "I can send this man straightaway to jail. I will ask police officers to take him to jail now itself."
He wanted the High Court to give a direction to the director general of police to provide him security, as he feared threats from the family of Jayalalitihaa aide and AIADMK general secretary V K Sasikala.
When the case came up before the justice for maintainability, the forged documents intrigued the judge who told the petitioner’s lawyer to produce Krishnamoorthy before the Chennai city commissioner of police on Saturday and hand over the original documents for verification.
"Even if the documents are placed before an LKG student, he will say that they are fabricated. You attached a photo available in public domain. Do you think anyone can just walk in and initiate PIL proceedings? This man has fabricated the document. Where is the original? Don’t play with the court," said Justice Mahadevan.
He later told additional public prosecutor Emilias to check and ascertain the genuineness of the documents and said the documents should be placed before the commissioner of police. "Let the commissioner verify the genuineness of the documents," he said.
He even chided social activist K R ‘Traffic’ Ramaswamy, who accompanied Krishnamoorthy. The ‘adoption deed’ submitted before the court had photographs and signatures of Jayalalithaa, Shoban Babu and Vasanthamani on the rear, while the signature of M G Ramachandran as ‘witness’ to adoption was also there. The date was when MGR was not able to move even his hand but bedridden in hospital, said the judge.
