Shihan Hussaini, Jayalalithaa’s supporter and karate expert, crucified himself on a wooden cross as dozens of AIADMK workers watched. A video shows Hussaini’s aides hammering 6-inch nails into his palms and feet, crucifying him on the cross.
Hussaini, writhing in pain, remained hanging on the cross for six minutes and 7 seconds despite going through excruciating pain.
Jayalalithaa quit her office last year after she was arrested and jailed in a corruption case. She was replaced by her loyalist O Paneerselvam.
