Chennai: French national Tamizachi kicked up a storm after she said in a Facebook post that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa has passed away.
The Chennai police on Friday booked her for spreading rumours.
In her post on Thursday, Tamizachi had claimed that she had received information from reliable sources that Jayalalithaa passed away two days ago.
She reportedly mentioned that "RSS killed Jayalalithaa because it is planning to spread riots in Tamil Nadu.
Tamizachi reportedly lives in France and is known for several controversial posts before, including the Chennai techie Swathi murder case.
She has been reportedly accusing RSS behind a sequence of events in TN.
AIADMK's IT wing soon filed a complaint and the police booked her under three sections of the IPC including promoting enmity between different groups.
Meanwhile, DMK leader M Karunanidhi on Friday wished Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa speedy recovery and said the state government should put a stop to rumours about her medical condition.
"Due to keeping of Jayalalithaa's health condition a closely-guarded secret, some people are spreading baseless rumours about her health condition," Karunanidhi said.
The DMK leader said Tamil Nadu Governor Vidyasagar Rao had not gone and met Jayalalithaa, who has been in hospital for more than a week.
There is also no news on leaders of ruling AIADMK's allies meeting the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister in hospital, he said.
The former chief minister said the state government should have at least release a photograph of her in the hospital as she chaired a meeting of state officials on the Cauvery water issue and dictated her speech to be read out at a meeting on the subject in New Delhi.
