Slain LTTE chief V Prabhakaran's ailing mother, Parvati, who arrived on Friday night from Malaysia, was deported immediately as the Central government did not give permission for her stay in India, police said in Chennai.
Parvati, who was supposed to get admitted to a hospital in Chennai, arrived from Kuala Lumpur but policemen did not permit her to alight from the aircraft, officials said.
Elaborate security arrangements were made and suburban police commissioner, Jahangir, was himself present to oversee matters as there was a crowd of over 150 persons including MDMK general secretary Vaiko and Tamil nationalist movement leader P Neduraman, both vocal supporters of the proscribed LTTE, at the airport.
On May 18, 2009, the Sri Lankan government announced Prabhakaran had been killed while trying to escape advancing army troops in the north of the country and said his parents were found inside a camp for displaced people.
His father Tiruvekkdam Velupilli died this January.
