A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra issued notice to former MP KC Palanisamy asking him to be personally present before it on November 28, failing which a non-bailable arrest warrant would be issued against him and his properties would be attached.
“Having heard counsel for the parties, we are of the considered opinion that the real contesting party is respondent no. 3 (Palanisamy),” the bench said and ordered issuance of notice to him.
It said the notice should be issued “with a stipulation that he shall be present before this court on November 28, 2017, failing which a non-bailable warrant of arrest shall be issued.”
The apex court was hearing a civil appeal filed against National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) order of July 5 this year in favour of Kasturi and Sons Ltd (KSL), owner of The Hindu newspaper whose subsidiary firm was sold to Palanisamy in 2004.
