Maya and her daughter, Gunapriya, came to the commissioner s office carrying kerosene in a can at 12.30pm. Police personnel prevented Maya when she tried to douse herself in kerosene, in an apparent attempt to commit self-immolation.
The Vepery police took Maya into custody and questioned her.
I have decided to end my and my daughter s lives for the sake of Jayalalithaa, she said.
Maya has acted in MGR-starrer Amarakaviyam and in Rajinikanth movie Garjanai.
