Arrest warrant recalled after Vijayakant appears in court
Actor Vijayakant, DMDK founder president appeared before the Thanjavur Principal Sessions Judge R Sethumadhavan on Wednesday in a defamation case. This follows the issuance of a bailable warrant against him by the court on September 11.
On Wednesday, when Vijaykant appeared before the Judge, his counsels applied for recall of the bailable warrant and the court accepted the plea. Afterwards, Vijayakant was told about the complaint filed against him.
Replying to this, the actor refuted the charges. After hearing the counsels of the both sides, Judge R Sethumadhavan adjourned the case for November 28.
The State Government had filed the defamation against the actor case following his speech at a public meeting held on August 10, 2012 in Thanjavur.
Meanwhile, talking to reporters, Viijayakanth said he and his party will not be cowed down by the cases. “There are 50-60 cases against me. All are foisted and I would face them.’’
