CHENNAI: Madras High Court has directed the Race Course police in Coimbatore to extend the date of personal appearance of TR Silambarasan alias Simbu (32) to January 5.

The advance bail application from Simbu, who feared arrest for the controversial ‘beep’ song, came up on Tuesday before Justice B Rajendran, who then issued the directive.

The High Court will re-open only on January 5 after Christmas and New Year holidays. The prosecution said the impact of the song was not confined to the city or the State alone, but it had crossed the country.

Meanwhile the Women Lawyers Association (WLA) members entered the scene and opposed any relief to Simbu, who they said had allegedly offended women by the obscene song.

Meanwhile, following actor Silambarasan’s claim that he was not responsible for  releasing the controversial beep song online, the cyber-crime wing of the City police has requested video-hosting platform YouTube’s management to track the account from which the song was uploaded.

Sources in the police department said that the cyber-crime wing attached to the Central Crime Branch (CCB) has sought details from YouTube of the IP address from which the song was uploaded on to their site for the second time within the last 10 days.
