    Point to note is that the family members of Karunanidhi have not approached the High Court, as Justice SS Sundar tells DMK’s lawyer. The case has been filed by the DMK. However, when doctors at Kauvery Hospital told the family that there was no hope of revival, they met TN CM E Palaniswami asking for space at Marina beach for a burial.

    The DMK moved the court hours after the state government announced its inability to allot burial space on the Marina beach citing legal hurdles. In a special late night hearing before the first bench, comprising Acting Chief Justice Huluvadi G Ramesh and Justice S S Sundar, the counsel for DMK questioned the government’s legal ground for not allotting space for burying Karunanidhi at the Marina beach.

    Hearing the matter, Acting Chief Justice Huluvadi G Ramesh adjourned it to 8 am. The DMK argued that there was no legal impediment to allotting space within the memorial of former Chief Minister C N Annadurai on the beachfront.
