S. Regupathy has an ongoing criminal case against him, says TN BJP President

Tamil Nadu BJP President K. Annamalai wrote to Chief Justice of India NV Ramana on Friday objecting to the participation of the state’s Justice Minister S. Regupathy in a proposed office organized by the Madras High Court for the laying of the foundation stone of the High Court administrative block, saying he was facing a criminal case.

In his letter, Mr Annamalai said the minister, who was on the list of attendees at the event, had an ongoing criminal case against him.

If the Minister were brought into the event and allowed to sit with the Chief Justice of India and other Madras High Court Judges, it would cause serious shame and dissent among litigants, the general public and the legal fraternity, he mentioned.

At the inauguration of the Madurai Bench of Madras High Court, Mr Annamalai said, Chief Minister Jayalalithaa was supposed to be the guest of honour, but citing the pending criminal cases against her, the party opposition party DMK sent representations to the Chief Justice to prevent her from attending the inauguration. Jayalalithaa did not attend the inauguration nor was his name inscribed on the inauguration plaques, he said. Mr Annamalai asked the Chief Justice to take note of a similar case in this case and do the needful.
