A 62-year-old AIADMK functionary died of a stroke after hearing news of Jayalalithaa’s critical condition on Sunday night.

Palaniyammal, the general secretary of AIADMK for NGO Colony in Coimbatore, enquired about Jayalalithaa’s condition last night. When she heard the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister had suffered a cardiac arrest, she died of a shock-induced stroke.

Palaniyammal is the second AIADMK member to die of shock from news on Jayalalithaa’s cardiac arrest. Nelagandan, an AIADMK member from Cuddalore district, also died of shock on Sunday night while he was watching news of Jayalalithaa’s health.

Another similar incident was reported in October when a 47-year-old AIADMK worker had died of heart attack in Coimbatore, after hearing rumours about Jayalalithaa’s health.

Amma, as Jayalalithaa is popularly known, has been in Chennai’s Apollo Hospital since September 22, when she was admitted for fever and dehydration.

A large number of emotional supporters have thronged the hospital and police have been deployed in large numbers in case they react strongly to further developments.

Jaya’s devoted supporters have been known to commit suicide in the past in reaction to any bad news about her.
