Smiling Kanimozhi talks to half-brother Stalin in court
Stalin, clad in his trademark white shirt and dhoti, waited for 30 minutes at the Special CBI court at the Patiala House Court complex here for his sister to come.
A composed Kanimozhi came inside the court of Judge O P Saini and smiled at her husband Aravindan and others present. Then, the senior DMK leader stood up and greeted former Telecom Minister A Raja, who is also in jail, and shook hands with him.
As he saw Kanimozhi walking near his seat, Stalin asked "How are you doing?". Her answer was just a smile and all the three stood for a while before being nudged by DMK Parliamentary Party leader T R Baalu to sit.
Stalin sat between Kanimozhi and Raja and got to know from them conditions in the jail and how they were being treated. All the three then settled for an interaction in Tamil that lasted 50 minutes.
"How is father?" a concerned Kanimozhi asked Stalin, to which he replied: "He is doing fine." DMK chief M Karunanidhi had met Kanimozhi at the Tihar jail yesterday.
Then, Kanimozhi asked her brother about the well-being of his family members in Chennai. In between, Kanimozhi and Raja were seen talking to each other.
Though the atmosphere was emotionally-charged, both Stalin and Kanimozhi were seen talking casually to each other.
