The Chennai Police registered an FIR against popular social media user Tamizachi for spreading rumours over Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa's health. 

Tamizachi wrote on her Facebook wall on Thursday that she had received information from reliable sources that Jayalalithaa died two days ago. 

She also alleged that the AIADMK supremo was killed by the RSS because their plan is to start riots in Tamil Nadu. She has referred to cases like the Swathi murder case, the murder of Hosur VHP leader Soori, the murder of Hindu Munanni functionary Sasikumar and said that in all these instances, muslims were blamed and Jayalalithaa would have stood in the way of the RSS for starting Hindu-Muslim riots in the state and so she was killed.                         

In the post, she also added that the government should inform the public about the Chief Minister’s true condition if what she is saying isn't true and put all doubts to rest. 

AIADMK IT Wing had filed the complaint against Tamizachi for spreading rumours about Jayalalithaa’s health. The crime branch department has booked her under three sections- Section 153A(Promoting enmity between different groups), Section 505 (1) and (2)- (Statements conducing to public mischief).

Jayalalithaa was admitted to the hospital on September 22, 2016 and following that, there have been various rumours doing the rounds regarding her treatment and health.
