Chennai, May 10 (ANI): The Centre has granted permission to slain Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) leader Prabhakaran”s mother Parvathi Ammal to enter the country.
Union Home Minister P Chidambaram has allowed Parvathi conditional entry for medical treatment in Chennai, television channel reported.
The temporary visa will be for six months and her movement will remain confined to the hospital.
The Tamil Nadu Government last week recommended to the Centre to allow Parvathy to undergo medical treatment in Chennai following a request by her.
Last month, immigration officers deported Parvathi to Malaysia when she came to Tamil Nadu for treatment. This led to several questions being raised against the government.
The issue was also taken to the Madras High Court, which sought an answer from the government as to why Prabhakaran”s mother was deported.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Karunanidhi said he did not know of her visit. (ANI)
