Madras HC adjourns Kamal’s anticipatory bail petition

Chennai, May 16 (IANS) The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Thursday adjourned the anticipatory bail petition filed by actor-politician Kamal Haasan.

The actor who has floated the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) party, had filed the petition after the police registered a complaint against him following a controversial election campaign speech.

On Sunday, at the Aravakuruchi Assembly constituency, Haasan, while campaigning for his party candidate, said about the killer of Mahatma Gandhi: “The first extremist of independent India was a Hindu — Nathuram Godse. It all started from there.”

The statement drew angry responses from the BJP.
