Summons issued to several stars

The petition filed against Sri Priya, Suriya, Vijayakumar, Arun Vijay, Vivek, Sathyaraj, Sarath Kumar and Cheran came up for hearing at the Sivagangai district court yesterday, October 30th, 2009. According to the petitioner (wife of a journalist), the actors and actress tarnished the image of the journalists and their families in their speeches during the protest meeting held by the Nadigar Sangam, in Chennai, condemning the defamation of film artistes by the Tamil daily Dina Malar.
The petitioner contended that the stars must be punished under section 499 of the IPC. Taking up this issue for hearing, the magistrate ordered that summons be issued to the above-mentioned stars to appear before the court on November 19th.(BW)
