Former Tamil Nadu chief minister 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 prosecution witness in the 2G case.

Challenging the trial court’s May 31 order,82-year-old Ammal in her plea sought that the court pass an order for constitution of a medical board which would furnish a report on her fitness to appear in court.

Appearing for Ammal before Justice Veena Birbal,advocate Sudhir Nandrajog told the court that she was diagnosed with cognitive and behavioural abnormalities in June last year.

The court deferred the hearing in the case after the CBI raised the issue of the maintainability of the petition.
