Chennai: The Madras High Court today told
the Centre to allow Parvathiammal, mother of slain LTTE Leader
V Prabhakaran, to undergo medical treatment in India whenever
she wanted to do so.

"Whenever the representative of Parvathiammal intimates
the Indian High Commission at Colombo that she is willing to
undergo treatment in India, the respondents (Centre) are
directed to allow her to undergo the treatment", a division
bench, comprising Justices Elipe Dharma Rao and S S Sasidharan
said.

The bench gave the order on a petition filed by
Parvathiammal, seeking a direction to the Centre to allow her
to come to India for treatment and to bear the cost.

The External Affairs Ministry in a counter affidavit had
said Parvathiammal had decided to defer her visit to India
"for the time being".
