Petition against Kushboo dismissed

Staff Reporter

TIRUNELVELI: A judicial magistrate court here has dismissed the case filed by a Pattali Makkal Katchi activist against actress Kushboo for her comments on pre-marital sex.

The district treasurer of the PMK, Pappa Rathinam, had filed the case against the actress stating that the comments of Ms. Kushboo had hurt the feelings, rich culture and tradition of the Tamils. As her remarks would mislead the young girls and affect their marriage prospects, the court should initiate appropriate action against her, the petitioner said.

When the case came up for hearing, Judicial Magistrate I. Anil Kumar, while dismissing the petition on Friday, said there was no prima facie case against Ms. Kushboo as the petitioner had not submitted enough evidence to support the charges made in the petition.

Meanwhile, the Judicial Magistrate of Tenkasi, Elangovan, admitted a petition against actress, Suhasini, who supported the comments of Ms. Kushboo, and posted the matter for December 2.
