October 21, 2004 16:02 IST

"The seventh standard student left the school with permission to attend her father's funeral. She is welcome back to pursue her studies," Sister Epiphany, who heads the school, said on Thursday. She added that the institution will help Prabha in every way possible.

She denied reports that the school had considered throwing Prabha out after she attended her father's funeral on Wednesday.

Veerappan was gunned down by a Special Task Force of the Tamil Nadu police near Dharmapuri on Monday night.

"The [school] management is aware that Prabha was in no way connected with the actions of her father and the institution would not take any punitive action against her," Sister Epiphany said.

Prabha, the second daughter of Veerappan, was admitted to the school in 2002 by a Chennai-based advocate and her mother Muthulakshmi.
