SOUTH Indian actor and former Mylapore assemblyman S.V. Shekher has lodged a report with Chennai police that he had received threats and abusive calls from several people, including women, Malaysia Nanban reported.
He claimed that a member of the Hindu Maha Sabha group called him on Tuesday night and warned that 500 people would stage a protest in front of his house.
Police said they had traced several calls believed to have been made by a person claiming commission from Shekher over an alleged property sale.
Last month, the actor asked police to take action against members of the group who had claimed that his play Mahabarathathil Mangatha was an insult to Hindus.
> MIC branch chairmen have been urged to actively serve the people to ensure that the party remains respected, Tamil Nesan reported.
Making this call, newly-elected Klang MIC chief S.A. Vigneswaran said he would unite all branch chairmen in his division and come out with guidelines for them to follow.
“We should serve the people with dedication and solve their problems so that they will continue supporting the MIC,” he said at a dinner in Klang on Tuesday.
