Actor Prakash Raj files complaint against PostCard news

Actor and director Prakash Raj has filed a complaint against PostCard News alleging that the online portal had published articles defaming him. The Cubbon Park police on Wednesday registered his complaint under the IT Act.

Raj told The Hindu that the portal had published defamatory articles on him on at least four occasions, including once after the murder of Gowri Lankesh. “The articles became very personal in nature, making derogatory statements. I was unable to file a complaint as their website gave no clarity on who was authoring these articles. Now that the police have arrested one of the co-founders, there is some hope.”

On March 29, the portal’s co-founder Mahesh Vikram Hegde was arrested by the CCB on the charges of spreading fake and communally sensitive news.
