    During the hearing the DMK had provided a sketch indicating the place at which Karunanidhi would be laid to rest. The court said that the burial place would be made available in consonance with the rough sketch provided by the petitioner.

    The court also said that such exercise shall be carried out by the respondent authorities forthwith. The DMK scored a major victory after it won the case against the government of Tamil Nadu, which had objected to the burial at the Marina. The government has now accepted the order and said that it would not appeal.
