COIMBATORE: President of Bharath Sena’s Women’s wing D. Saraswathi has urged City Police Commissioner K. Periaiah to take action against three auto drivers who were maligning her and her husband in the social media.
Saraswathi, who met the Commissioner and submitted a petition, said the two were spreading false information about her in the social media to tarnish her image.
Saraswathi, who owns Manikandan Traders – a construction material supplying firm, said when she started business 20 years ago, she used the services of auto drivers Nandhu, Kannan and Parthiban to deliver goods to customers. “But they would go to the customers places in an inebriated condition as a result of which I lost their (customers) goodwill. Soon I bought my own vehicle and started supplying the material. This has irked them and they started giving me trouble,” she said in her petition.
Saraswathi alleged that on January 13, the three drivers attacked her and her husband Duraisami and abused them in foul language. “They shot a video of the entire incident. But they have edited the portion where me and my husband were attacked. They have retained the portion where we retaliated in self defence and put it on facebook,” she said and urged the Commissioner to take action against the culprits.
