2G case: Karuna’s wife moves HC for exemption

Former Tamil Nadu CM M Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal on Tuesday moved the Delhi high court against the trial court order, which had dismissed her plea for exemption from appearing as a prosecution witness in the 2G case.

Challenging the trial court’s 31 May order, 82-year-old Ammal in her plea sought that the court pass an order for constitution of a medical board which would then furnish a report on her fitness to appear in the court. Appearing for Ammal before justice Veena Birbal, senior advocate Sudhir Nandrajog submitted she was diagnosed with cognitive and behavioural abnormalities in June last year and that she is progressively and gradually losing recognition of even her near and dear ones. Nandrajog also argued that due to her physical and mental condition, Ammal is prone to ‘abrasive behaviour, clumsy habit with sudden hitting or punching people, inappropriate talk and action and inability to take care of day-to-day activities’.
