Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], August 8 (ANI): The Madras High Court has adjourned the hearing regarding the burial space for Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) chief M Karunanidhi at Chennai's Marina beach till Wednesday morning.
The court adjourned the hearing till 8 am after Tamil Nadu Government sought more time to file a reply on the matter.
"Government side said they need some more time to file a response. Court granted time for hearing at 8 am tomorrow," said Balu, lawyer for Pattali Makkal Katchi.
On Tuesday, the DMK filed a plea in the court after state government denied burial space for Karunanidhi near Anna Memorial at Marina beach owing to pending petitions against burial on Marina beach.
However, the advocate who filed a petition against burial on Marina beach on Tuesday night withdrew all the cases saying that "Kalainger Karunanidhi was very important".
Karunanidhi breathed his last on Tuesday at Chennai's Kauvery Hospital. His funeral will be held with full state honours on Wednesday. (ANI)
