File case if proof against Kamal on `nilavembu’ comment, HC tells police

Covai Post Network

Chennai: Madras High Court today directed the police to file a case against actor Kamal Haasan for recent comments against herbal drink `nilavembu’, if it found prima evidence against him. The actor had passed comments against the drink distributed by the State Government.

Social activist G Devarajan had recently lodged a police complaint stating that the actor’s comment against the drink said to fight dengue had negative tones and he had through the twitter handle asked his fans to avoid distributing the drink as it would have side-effects.

Devarajan has now moved the court for action against the actor and said the police did not take any action on his complaint.

The actor should have come out with the side-effects, if he had any after taking the drink or else owed an explanation on what basis he had made such a comment. There was also the need to books a case under cybercrime, the petitioner contended.

Justice M S Ramesh said the police could register a case against Kamal and investigate if there was prima facie offence.
