The funeral of late Thiruvengadam Velupillai, father of LTTE leader leader Mr. V. Pirabaharan, is to take place in Valveddiththu'rai on Sunday. The mother of LTTE leader Mr. V. Pirapaharan, Vallipuram Parvathy, was Friday released from Sri Lanka Army custody and handed over to Tamil National Alliance Parliamentarian and Presidential candidate M. K. Sivajilingam, SLA officials in Colombo said. The ailing 80-year-old mother was driven by road from Colombo to the northern Jaffna Peninsula in an ambulance.

The release of Ms. Parvathy comes a day after Pirapaharan's father, Thiruvengadam Vellupillai, died in custody. He was 86.

The remains were handed over to Mr. Sivajilingam at a funeral parlour in Homagama Friday afternoon by the Sri Lankan military authorities.

The remains will be taken to Valveddiththu'rai along the A9 road and kept at his daughterís residence for the public to pay their last respects.

Cremation will take place on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. in Valveddiththu'rai.
