CHENNAI: Madras High Court on Thursday refused to stay the operation of the summons issued by Coimbatore police against film star Simbu and music director Anirudh Ravichander. Following complaints from the Coimbatore unit of the All India Democratic Women Association (AIDWA) and others alleging that a song sung by Simbu and composed by Anirudh, which was uploaded in the social media, was obscene and depicted women in a very bad taste, the Race Course police in the textile city registered a criminal case against the duo and issued summons, requiring them to appear before it on December 19.

Challenging this, the duo moved the High Court. Justice R Subbiah, before whom the criminal original petition came up on Thursday, refused to stay the summons and adjourned the matter till January 5.
