Apollo Hospitals on Thursday said that all CCTV cameras in the intensive care unit were switched off and all patients in the ward were shifted during the 75-day hospitalisation of former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, popularly known as Amma.
“One complete ICU was occupied by our former chief minister Jayalalithaa. So the hospital administration removed the (CCTV) because they did not want everyone to be watching,” Prathap C Reddy, founder chairman of Apollo Hospitals told ANI on Thursday.
The hospital founder chairman added that all the patients on the floor were shifted to other floors because of security reasons.
Jayalalithaa was treated at the Apollo Hospitals, Chennai at the time of her death. Amma died on December 5, 2016.
