    The court also directed that the government allot land forthwith at Marina. The order was passed while allowing a petition filed by the DMK which challenged the government's order of not allowing the burial at Marina.

    With this order, Karunanidhi would be laid to rest at the Marina where other leaders such as C N Annadurai, M G Ramachandran and Jayalalithaa were buried.

    DMK's lawyer, V Kannadasan, said, "The DMK's plea for the burial of Kalaignar's body near Anna memorial has been accepted by the Madras High Court. The court further directed Tamil Nadu government to ensure & establish a memorial for Kalaignar's."
