Karur Municipality Commissioner summoned by Madras HC in contempt case

On Wednesday, the Madurai bench of the Madras high court ordered statutory notice to the Karur’s municipality commissioner and police inspector, summoning them to appear to appear before court following a contempt case.

The contempt case was filed by former minister V Senthilbalaji.

During the Madras HC hearing, the petitioner's side told the court that the municipality commissioner P Ashokkumar and police inspector S Prithiviraj failed to respond to the representation of the petitioner.

The petitioner V Senthilbalaji has submitted a representation on December 27, last year seeking permission to conduct sport events and a meeting at Thiruvalluvar Maithanam, Karur from January 27 to 29 in which MLA T T V Dhinakaran was expected to participate.

The court on January 19 passed an order saying that “the petitioner vehemently submitted that on account of political rivalry, permission had been unjustly denied, but the court was not inclined to go into the submission and it directed the respondents to process the application before January 23”.

The municipality, however, defied the court order and passed an order refusing to grant permission to the petitioner on the grounds that “it preferred a special leave petition before the SC against the HC order”. Following this, the court ordered statutory notice.
