Whether prostitution can be allowed for Two times meals? Tamil Speech by S.V.Ramani.
The Press Club also condemned the arrest and urged the Government to intervene and order the release of Mr. Lenin News editor Dinamalar and sought action against film artistes, who had used filthy and abusive language against the media. One Actor told some ladies are doing the prostitution for the sake of two times of meals only.
MUJ General Secretary D Suresh Kumar, in a statement said, when the daily had published a clarification, expressing regret and it was made open to the film stars to move the court and seek the remedy, the police action was highly prejudiced and undemocratic.
DINAMALAR NEWS editor, B Lenin who was arrested for publishing an article that accused some of the top Tamil actors of being involved in a sex scandal has been granted bail on Friday (October 9). The charges against the scribe have not been dropped though he was granted bail by the court.
Lenin is expected to be released from a Chennai prison later in the day after the completion of formalities. A case under Section 4 of the Tamil Nadu Women Harassment (Prevention) act was registered against the Dinmalar scribe.
The Dinamalar editor has received strong support from the journalist fraternity in Chennai after he was arrested by the police on charges of defaming Tamil film actors. Madras Union of Journalists and Dinmalar employees had protested against his arrest and met the Chennai Commissioner of Police to lodge a complaint in this regard.
The journalists have demanded that an enquiry should have been undertaken before ordering his arrest. Actress Bhuvaneswari was arrested by police for running a high-profile brothel.
Lenin was arrested after a complaint was lodged by Radha Ravi, general secretary of the South India Film Artistes Association. He was accused of publishing a statement of Bhuvaneswari, which mentions several Tamil actors as part of a sex scandal.
We request the Chief Minister, that even though Lenin was released on Bail, the charges against Lenin may also be withdrawn immediately.
