Chennai, Jul 4 (UNI) Even after the Madras High Court asked the Tamil Nadu government to depute a senior police official to meet former Chief Minister Jayalalithaa to ascertain her personal threat perception, the matter has once again come to court, this time about the actual venue of the meeting.

Jaya's counsel A Navaneethakrishnan mentioned the matter before Justice S Jaichandren yesterday, and said court order was being politicised.

According to him, an official Duraikumar, attached to the security wing of the special branch police, wrote to the former Chief Minister on June 28, seeking her appointment.

In response on June 30, Jayalalithaa said he could meet her at Kodanadu estate on July 2 at 1600 hrs. However, the official expressed his inability to meet her at Kodanadu and sought an appointment at Poes Garden.

Bringing the matter to the notice of the court, Navaneethakrishnan said the June 9 order of the court specifically stated that the official should meet Jayalalithaa at her residence.

However, when asked to come to Kodanadu, where she had been staying, the official was not inclined to meet her even there.

Justice Jaichandren posted the case for further hearing on Monday, when the Advocate-general would respond to the allegations.
