On his third visit to meet his “favourite child” since she was sent to jail,DMK patriarch Karunanidhi had a considerably subdued entry in Tihar. Saturday being a half-day for jail officials,Karunanidhi’s cavalcade could not use the VIP gate through the Director General’s office like their previous visits,as the administrative block had closed for the day.

Karunanidhi was with his wife Rajathi Ammal and senior party leader T R Baalu. His car entered through gate number 3,the usual one used by visitors. For his earlier visits,he was allowed to enter through the DG’s office in gate 6. The meeting took place in the same place as before — the deputy superintendent’s office.

The jail superintendent and Baalu waited outside as the DMK chief and his wife met their daughter. “The superintendent’s office is on the first floor. Since Karunanidhi is wheelchair bound,he could not go upstairs,” Tihar Deputy Inspector General of Prisons R N Sharma said.

“Kanimozhi was much more calm than her parents,it was clear Karunanidhi was very worried. Both Kanimozhi and her mother appeared to be consoling Karunanidhi,” an official said.

DMK spokesperson T K S Elangovan said Karunanidhi had been very worried. “He has been extremely disturbed about Kanimozhi being in jail for almost six months. Though legal experts and Kanimozhi herself are positive that she can at least apply for bail,he was very worried,” he said.
