Former minister and Tirumayam MLA S Regupathy surrendered before the Judicial Magistrate Court on Thursday and was granted bail in a case against him for calling the Pudukkottai District Collector an AIADMK functionary.
Based on the complaint by Sheik Diwan, 40, an advocate from Machuvadi in Pudukkottai, the Pudukkottai Town police registered a case. Sheik Diwan claimed that Regupathy has been spreading the false information across the social media to malign the reputation of the District Collector. He also claimed that Regupathy is behind the false propaganda and demanded action against him.
Based on his complaint, the police, who reportedly conducted an investigation, registered a case under four IPC Sections against Regupathy.
