: A DMK women’s wing functionary, arrested for an allegedly provocative speech against Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, has filed a bail petition in the Principal Sessions Court. The city police arrested Karl Marx (65) last Friday in Thanjavur after she issued a death threat to the Chief Minister at a public meeting here on June 19. She was charged under Section 124-A(sedition) and 506 (ii)(criminal intimidation) of IPC. Contending that she was falsely implicated in the case, she sought release on bail. The bail petition will come up for hearing on Thursday.
