Karunanidhi will be laid to rest next to his mentor Annadurai at Marina Beach

Chennai: After a three-hour hearing on Wednesday, the Madras High Court has ruled that DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi would be buried next to his mentor, C N Annadurai, at the iconic Marina Beach in Chennai.

The high court decision came almost 15 hours the towering leader's death at Kauvery hospital in Chennai on Tuesday evening.
