Three weeks after the demise of legendary singer SP Balasubrahmanyam, one of his ardent fans has stunningly drawn attention after he had approached the International Court of Justice (ICJ) with his new petition in which he claimed that China is the reason for the death of the singer, who died in Chennai on September 25 at the age of 74.
SP Balasubrahmanyam was admitted at the MGM Healthcare Hospital in Chennai on August 5 after he had tested positive for the COVID-19 viral infection. While the singer said he had a mild infection and would be discharged in two days, his health condition had taken a wrong turn and he was moved to the Intensive Care Unit and placed under life support.
During the course of his hospitalization, he had developed a lung infection while battling against COVID-19. He was spelled critical and there were mixtures of good response and deteriorations and though he was tested negative for the pandemic, he continued his battle for survival, and after 50 days of his hospitalization, he was declared dead on September 25 at the age of 74 due to cardiac arrest.
With full police honors, the legendary singer was laid to rest at his farmhouse on the outskirts of Chennai. Three weeks after his demise, one of his fans had blamed China as the reason for his death. According to reports, Srinivasa Rao, who is a native of Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, and an advocate at the Andhra Pradesh High Court, has now approached ICJ with his petition.
In his petition, he had held China as responsible for the singer's death. He said that the country's economy has taken a massive decline for the past eight months in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many countries are accusing China of creating the virus and allegedly spreading to the world.
He further stated that China has been mulling to collapse the economic corridors of India and the United States and with the view of that, China has spread the virus across the world and due to China's action, many leaders and celebrities like SP Balasubrahmanyam and lakhs of innocent people have died. In his petition, he had appealed to the ICJ to initiate criminal action against China.
China has been centered at the critics of the Western world in holding the country accountable for spreading the virus. US President Donald Trump, who recently diagnosed with the COVID-19 viral infection, has been one of the fierce global voices pressing to hold China accountable for the pandemic. Trump has directly called the Coronavirus as a 'China virus' and he had even stopped funding the World Health Organization (WHO) by claiming that the global agency has been going in favor of China.
