Allowing actors Sarath kumar and Radha Ravi to file a fresh petition challenging their permanent removal from the Nadigar Sangam, the Madras High Court today closed a petition filed earlier, against their interim suspension from the Sangam.
The Court gave liberty to actors Radha Ravi and Sarathkumar to file a fresh petition challenging their permanent removal from the Sangam, when the suit challenging the duo's interim suspension came up for hearing today.
The newly-elected office bearers of the Nadigar Sangam (South Indian Film Artists Association) had passed an interim suspension order against the former President Sarathkumar and General Secretary Radharavi of the body, alleging irregularities during their tenure.
However, it was challenged by both in the High Court.
The counsel for the association submitted that there is a fresh development with regard to the suspension and in the General Body Meeting of the association, which was held yesterday, both were permanently removed from the rolls and hence, the present case of challenging the interim suspension will not have good hold up.
Recording the submissions, the Court said the case filed by the two actors challenging their interim suspension is hereby closed.
They may challenge their permanent suspension if so advised in a fresh petition, it added.
The General Council meet of the Association held here yesterday had endorsed a proposal to expel former office bearers Sarath Kumar and Radha Ravi from the actors' body.
