It may be noted that Tamil Nadu minister and DMK leader Senthil Balaji was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a case related to a job-for-cash scam when he was a minister in the previous AIADMK government.
Balaji was arrested from his residence on June 14, 2023. However, the minister complained of chest pain and was admitted to a government hospital. The doctors after examining him diagnosed that he was suffering from heart ailment and later shifted him to Kauveri hospital for angiogram.
Doctors diagnosed that he was suffering from three blocks in the coronary artery and later conducted an angioplasty. In the meantime Tamil Nadu Governor R.N. Ravi had 'dismissed' Balaji from the council of ministers and later the decision was kept in abeyance after Union Home Minister Amit Shah flagged it.
