Controversial?: (Clockwise from top) The posters of Aishwarya and the models are deemed sexy in the MPKB summons.

PETALING JAYA: A non-Muslim watch retailer has been summoned by the Kota Baru Municipal Council (MPKB) over two “sexy” posters, including one of actress Aishwarya Rai – an “offence” he has supposedly committed more than 10 times since the 1990s.

Swee Cheong Watch & Pen Co owner Lee Kum Chuan said he was ordered to pay fines even before he started operating the shop in Aeon Mall – which opened in April. He runs two other similar outlets at KB Mall and Tesco in Kota Baru.
