Judge wants contempt proceedings against actor Suriya over NEET

Read Time:51 Second

Further to actor Suriya slamming the courts of the country over the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and for being ‘unfair’ to the students registered for entrance exams, Justice SM Subramaniam of the Madras High Court wrote to the High Court Chief Justice to initiate contempt proceedings against the actor.

The judge took exception to a statement issued by the actor on Sunday, claiming that courts were ordering students to write NEET, when the judges were holding only virtual courts due to COVID-19. “The said statement in my considered opinion amounts to contempt of court as the integrity and devotion of the honourable judges as well as the judicial system of our great nation are not only undermined, but criticised in bad taste, wherein there is threat to the public confidence on the judiciary,” the communication read.

“Thus, the cine actor Mr. Suriya has committed contempt warranting contempt proceedings to uphold the majesty of our Indian judicial System,” the judge’s communication to the Chief Justice read.
