Former ADMK MP Senguttuvan has passed away on Thursday at the age of 65 in Vellore due to liver disease. He had been battling for survival for the past few days and breathed his last at a private hospital in Vellore. Following the demise, his mortal remains had been brought to his residence in Katpadi and kept for the public to pay homage.
After learning about the demise, several ADMK leaders had paid tribute to the deceased soul and expressed condolences to the family members. A lawyer by profession, Senguttuvan was one of the veteran leaders in the party and he was active in recent times owing to his health condition. He was elected to the 16th Lok Sabha from the Vellore constituency as an ADMK candidate in the 2014 general elections under the leadership of the then party's supremo J Jayalalithaa.
Seguttuvan had won the 2014 Lok Sabha polls from Vellore by defeating AC Shanmugam, the president of the New Justice Party by a margin of 59,393 votes. With this victory, he had become the second ADMK candidate to win from the Vellore constituency after a gap of thirty years. He didn't offer a ticket in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls post which he had quitted the party and joined AMMK, led by TTV Dhinakaran. However, months later, Senguttuvan had again joined the ADMK but didn't provide his contribution to active politics.
Before some months, he had developed a liver infection and was getting treated for the same. He was hospitalized in a private hospital in Vellore for the past one week and amid the treatment, he had breathed his last on Thursday at the age of 65. Senguttavan was born on 21 May 1956 and he enrolled as a lawyer in 1983. He had been a member of the ADMK since being a student at the Madras Law College in 1980. He had served as Vellore district's Government Pleader from 2001 to 2006 and as the Public Prosecutor from 2011 to 2014 and both these periods were ruled by the ADMK in Tamil Nadu.
Senguttuvan had resigned as the Public Prosecutor in 2014, ahead of contesting in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and became an MP from Vellore. He also had served as the joint secretary of the ADMK advocates' wing in the Vellore district. He also had authored books on the Code of Civil Procedure, Dishonoring of Cheques, Industrial Disputes Act, and Sexual Offences against women and children. His mortal remains had been brought to his residence in Katpadi, Vellore and the leaders are paying tribute to the deceased soul.
