Kamal alleges harassment by police, court gives relief

655

The Madras High Court has exempted actor-filmmaker-politician Kamal Haasan from being present at EVP Film City at Chembarambakkam on Wednesday to reconstruct the scene of a crane accident at the spot during the shooting for the movie ‘Indian-2’, which led to the death of three crew members on February 19.

The Makkal Needhi Maiam founder moved the Madras High Court alleging harassment by Chennai police while he appeared before them on March 3 2020 in connection with the freak accident on the sets of the ‘Indian 2’.

Kamal said in his plea that he was questioned by the Chennai police for three hours continuously without giving him a break. He also said that it was not necessary for him to be at the accident site for reconstruction as he is merely an actor and that the movie is produced by Lyca Productions.

There is no precedent of a hero being questioned, he said. The government’s counsel said, “Let the petitioner come at least for half an hour. He had all the time to go there for shooting, why won’t he come for an inquiry.”

The counsel also said that Kamal Hassan was only a witness and if any exception was given to him, all others would also seek similar relief. However, the Judge exempted Kamal from appearance for reconstruction purpose and disposed of the petition.
