Chennai: It's astounding as to the lengths that a supporter can go to in order to prove his allegiance to a politician. The proof of it was on display in Tamil Nadu where a supporter of AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa, Shihan Hussaini's aides nailed him to a wooden cross with 'Amma' written across his shirt.
Hussaini's demand was that Jayalalithaa be made CM of Tamil Nadu again.
As per ANI, Shihan was on cross for six minutes and seven seconds with six-inch-long iron nails hammered into his hands and feet.
He is supposedly a karate expert.
Meanwhile, DMK criticised Hussaini's 'crucifixion', with party spokesman TKS Elangovan terming the act as 'sycophancy' and 'insane' and called for his arrest, as per ANI.
On October 18, 2014, the Supreme Court had granted interim bail to Jayalalithaa on medical grounds after she had been in jail for 20 days on being held guilty in a disproportionate assets case.
She had earlier denied bail by the Karnataka High Court following her conviction and a four-year sentence in the graft case.
Then the former CM had moved the SC for bail on October 9.
The AIADMK chief had challenged the Karnataka High Court`s decision to deny her bail.
Jayalalithaa had pleaded that she be given immediate relief as she was suffering from various health-related ailments.
