AIADMK government on Monday appointed retired High Court judge Arumugaswamy to head the enquiry commission to probe the mystery behind the death of late chief minister J Jayalalithaa.

A government order to this effect was issued. Accordingly, Arumugaswamy would investigate about the death of Jayalalithaa and would submit a report to the government shortly.

Bowing to the demand made by rebel faction led by O Panneerselvam (OPS) for the merger, chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami recently announced that government would constitute a commission of inquiry, headed by a retired judge, to probe into the "mysterious" death of Jayalalithaa.

Palaniswami said that the government has decided to form a committee since there was speculation among various quarters about the Jayalalithaa's death. Soon after the announcement, both AIADMK factions -- one headed by Palaniswami and another led by Panneerselvem merged.
