CHENNAI: A 60 year-old woman advocate with more than 35 years of service has moved the Madras High Court questioning the rationale behind registering cases against actor TR Silambarasan (32) alias Simbu in connection with the ‘beep song’.

The writ plea also prayed for a directive to the police to register FIRs, like in the case of the ‘beep song episode’, against all the persons who projected women in bad taste and damaged their modesty.

Advocate P Balambal contended that police had registered the case, without defining and knowing the meaning of the words merged with the beep song; without knowing the person who was instrumental in uploading it on YouTube; and without knowing the place or the country from where it was uploaded.

The advocate also wondered whether police would show the same swift follow-up action in all situations and against all persons who projected women in bad taste, damaged their modesty on TV, press and in films, more particularly in songs, its sequences, dialogues and the picturisation.

In Simbu’s case, police registered a case without knowing the true meaning of the word mixed with the beep sound. If the police were interested in safeguarding the modesty and culture, they should take action against all concerned who projected women in bad taste, the advocate said.
