Kallakurichi girl’s death: Minister Ganesan and MLAs take part in the final procession and pay their

The body of the student, who was found dead at the hostel of a private school in Kallakurichi district, was handed over to her parents almost 11 days after her death. Public broke into tears after seeing her body. 
Raising suspicion in the death of his daughter, the girl’s father moved the Madras High Court seeking directions to conduct a re-postmortem on the body and requested the court to include a doctor of their choice in the team performing the postmortem. While granting permission to conduct a re-postmortem, the court refused to include a doctor of the father’s choice. 
The father immediately moved the Supreme Court who in turn refused to be involved in the matter and asked to reach out to the concerned High Court. 
While hearing a petition filed by the Tamil Nadu government, on Friday, requesting the court to direct the parents to accept their daughter’s body as a re-postmortem was completed as per the court direction, the Court directed the parents to receive the body of the deceased before 11 am on Saturday and upon failing to receive the girl’s body, directs the police to take action against them. 
The judge directed the panel to submit all the documents related to the re-postmortem to JIPMER hospital in Puducherry and a three-membered team from JIPMER hospital would review the documents and submit a report within a month.Subsequently, the family members received the body around 6 am on Saturday and performed final rites in Kallakurichi. 
State minister CV Ganesan and district collector paid their tributes to the body of the girl at the Kallakurichi government hospital where it was stored till morning. 
Meanwhile, to prevent untoward incidents during the last rites, three-tier protection was given to the final procession and a temporary check post was set up at the village border. While villagers are allowed to participate in the procession, outsiders are strictly prohibited.
 Her body is buried at a graveyard in Periya Nesalur village.
