  DMK MP Kanimozhi has rubbished claims made by LTTE leader Sasitharan’s wife that her husband had surrendered to Sri Lankan officials following a conversation with her.    The response from Kanimozhi came after Ananthy, the wife of LTTE leader Sasitharan, said in an interview that her husband had taken the decision to surrender after he spoke to Kanimozhi on satellite phone.    Kanimozhi however said that she did not even know Sasitharan was. “I am not an authority to ask someone to surrender either on behalf of the Indian government or the Sri Lankan government. I do not know who is behind this story,” she told The Hindu after being asked about the claim made by Ananthy.    DMK spokesperson TKS Elangovan however questioned the whole logic behind the claim stating that the way LTTE functioned, they were not an organisation that would make a call from Sri Lanka to India when it came to matters of surrendering.    "In 2009, we were constantly fighting with the Indian government seeking its intervention to stop the war and save the Tamils. Do you think we would have come out with the idea of surrender when we were not even able to convince the Indian government. There is no logic,” Mr Elangovan said, according to the report.
