Anupam Kher drags CPI(M) leader to court

Anupam Kher drags CPI(M) leader to court
Actor and former Censor Board Chairman Anupam Kher, today initiated criminal proceedings in a magistrate's court against CPI (M) General Secretary Harkishan Singh Surjeet, for allegedly describing him as an "RSS man."

The complaint was filed in the court of Magistrate C B Havelikar by Kher, who personally appeared along with his lawyer Majeed Memon.

The court adjourned the matter to November 17 for verification of the complaint.

Kher, who was unceremoniously removed from the post of Chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), dragged Surjeet to court for writing a defamatory article in CPI-M journal 'People's Democracy'.

Kher alleged in the impugned article that he was dubbed as an "RSS man" responsible for saffronising process to suit the Sangh's ideology.
