The court however asked the Senior Advocate Indira Jaising, appearing on behalf of the Amrutha that why the petition for DNA testing has not been filed before Madras HC. To which the senior advocate responded that the due to the fragile state of politics in kerala has put the petitioner in an apprehension of danger to life.
