According to certain close allies of the Kodanad Estate, Jayalalithaa’s will was kept in a suitcase in one of the rooms. Police confirmed that the goods in the suitcase had been lost.
Sayan was seriously injured in a road accident last day. His wife and daughter were killed in the accident. The main accused was also killed in another accident, in a few hours difference. The investigators are trying to scuttle the case based on the statement of Sayan. But doctors have informed that he is not in a healthy state to be able to fully cooperate with the questioning.
