Madras High Court Appoints Panel to Review Kombantext_fields
Chennai: The Madras High Court's Madurai bench on March 30 appointed a special panel to view the upcoming Tamil film Komban, and review whether its release would affect law and order in the state.
Legislator K Krishnasamy, also the President of Puthiya Tamilagam Party, had moved court alleging that the release of Karthi's Komban would create tension between the Thevar and some scheduled caste communities.
After hearing the views of both the parties, Justice S Tamilvanan and Justice VS Ravi said the movie should be screened in Chennai on March 31.
A 10-member expert committee, consisting of two retired judges and members from the petitioner's as well as the producer's side, will see the movie and submit a report.
The case has been adjourned for today evening.
Originally slated for release on April 2, Komban is yet to be given the censor certificate.
