The Madras High Court, Monday, came down hard on a man, who claimed to be the ’secret son’ of former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa.

Justice R Mahadevan directed the arrest of Erode resident J Krishnamoorthy saying that he not only cheated the court but also prepared forged documents.

Krishamoorthy had moved the court seeking help to declare him as Jayalalithaa’s son and hence the legal owner of all her properties.

He claimed that he was born to Jayalalithaa and late Telugu actor Shoban Babu. Krishnamoorthy had submitted a set of documents, last week, to strengthen his claim.

However, the learned judge had suspected that they were forged and had asked the police to investigate the genuineness of the documents.

“… Even if the documents are placed before an LKG student, he will say that they are fabricated documents. You attached a photo available in public domain. Do you think anyone can just walk in and initiate PIL proceedings?,” the judge had said last week.

The police in their report, submitted to the court, confirmed the suspicion.

Taking into consideration the report, Justice Mahadevan directed the police to take appropriate action against Krishnamoorthy in accordance with law.

Krishnamoorthy had claimed that he was born in 1985 and that a year later he was given in adoption to the family of Erode-based Vasanthamani, who allegedly worked in former chief minister M G Ramachandran’s household in the late 1980s.

According to the petitioner, the ’adoption deed’ which had photographs and signatures of Jayalalithaa, Shoban Babu and Vasanthamani on the rear, had the signature of MG Ramachandran as ’witnesses’ to adoption.

Referring to this, the judge said the late chief minister MG Ramachandran was not able to move even his hand around the time the document was allegedly prepared.
