The Indian government has allowed the ailing mother of slain Sri Lankan Tamil rebel leader Velupillai Prabhakaran to enter the country for medical treatment, officials said Monday.

Vallipuram Parvathi, 80, who suffers from paralysis, had been denied entry to India on arrival and deported back to Malaysia by immigration officials in April.

The government has now agreed to grant a six-month conditional visa, communicated in a letter to the Indian mission in Kuala Lumpur, PTI news agency reported.

Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi told the state assembly that authorities had allowed the visit for the purpose of medical treatment, the report said.

Karunanidhi said Parvathi would be required to confine herself to the hospital only. He also said she could opt for treatment in a government hospital, arranged by state officials.

But she would not be allowed to have any contact with anyone from political parties or banned organizations, Karunanidhi said.

After Parvathi's deportation in April, some political parties in Tamil Nadu had lobbied on her behalf in the state assembly but the chief minister denied any knowledge about her visit at the time.

India has more than 60 million Tamils, most of whom live in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, which is separated from northern Sri Lanka by a narrow stretch of sea.

Parvathi had left Sri Lanka for Malaysia after the death of her husband, Tiruvekkdam Velupillai, in military custody in January.

On May 18, Sri Lanka announced that rebel commander Prabhakaran had been killed while trying to escape advancing troops in the northern part of the country.

Two days earlier, the government had declared victory in Sri Lanka's 26-year civil war.

    Sri Lanka was ready to give residency for ever. So what?

    "Parvathi had left Sri Lanka for Malaysia after the death of her husband, Tiruvekkdam Velupillai, in military custody in January."

    Even though the above statement is true, it gives a bad picture about the military of Sri Lanka. They both received exceptional treatment from military looking after all their needs that they so thankful of.

    The Sri Lankan government gave her the option to remain with the Sri Lankan military or go anywhere she wish after her husband's demise of natural causes.

    ayanthi,
    she is mother of deadly and brutal snake . seem you have forgotten your past so quickly.

    Parents can never disown their children for their crimes!

    Monday, 10 May 2010 12:38 PM

    Sri Lanka should treat her in a humane way. The same way the treated Rohana Wijeweera's wife. After all, what can she do for her son's sins. How many children of today - even the ministerial brats - ever listen to their parents.

    Monday, 10 May 2010 12:45 PM

    Yep...and where were you when hundreds of tamils were murdered by sinhalese during the 1983 riots?

    Monday, 10 May 2010 12:52 PM

    Terrorists are a product of discrepancies in society. Parents are not the fault of illegalities committed by their children, more so when they are adults. The JVP is a product of sinhala cast society and disparity in oppportunity for youth. The JVP insurgency consisted mainly of youth from the southern low caste areas than anyone from Kandyan Govigama or Radala castes. The LTTE is also a product similar to this, which India used opportunity to her maximum.

    Good for the old lady. Paavam.

    Tuesday, 11 May 2010 10:15 AM

    Didn't you know that people started the riots after killing several men by (tamil) terorists.

    Monday, 10 May 2010 01:28 PM

    Local Boy... do you think the mother had control over her son, during early years, the parents were dead against his activities and try to change his mind and finally chased him out of their home...

    Monday, 10 May 2010 01:53 PM

    Why should your mother suffer, if you are a snake...Your whole argument is baseless and absurd..Then parents of those who have been sentenced to death for crimes, should be treated as criminals, without giving access to health care..

    Tuesday, 11 May 2010 10:29 AM

    Get well Lady - We are not angry with you - Any mom shouldnt have a son like you got..

    Monday, 10 May 2010 11:55 PM

    Her son being a ruthless killer does not make her evil!!!

    Tuesday, 11 May 2010 01:05 AM

    I hope they wont get your mother for anything you do. Local boy you have totally illogical reasoning to blame the mother for what Prabhakaran did.

    Tuesday, 11 May 2010 01:10 AM

    you are absolutely right MaPer. All those who blame the mother for Prabhakaran's deeds please think of your parents. for things that you do should we persecute your parents???

    Tuesday, 11 May 2010 01:34 AM

    Local boy is correct.

    Tuesday, 11 May 2010 02:29 AM

    Prabakaran killed lots of Tamils than Sinhalese !.

    Tuesday, 11 May 2010 02:34 AM

    He has used children & pregnant women as suicide bombers. All the intelligent moderate Tamil leaders were killed by this idiot. Did she speak a word about it !. Insted of that she & her husband were boasting about this Thug !.

    Monday, 10 May 2010 10:47 AM

    That is how Indians are, so about Sri Lankans

    Monday, 10 May 2010 10:48 AM

    This is so sad. Why cant some country grant her residency.
    she is only human.

    Monday, 10 May 2010 11:01 AM

    Where is her daughter?
