Chennai, Oct 2 (UNI) The Madras High Court has ordered an interim injunction against the attachment of a house in Chennai in which the wife of Mr Ravindras alias Appu, the adopted son of Former Chief Minister M G Ramachandran (MGR), is now staying.
The house in the T Nagar Area of the city was sought to be attached by the district administration under the Revenue Recovery Act following an order by a Labour Court on a case filed against the management of 'Thai' magazine.
Six people had claimed Rs 6,39,966 as dues from the management of the magazine.
The magazine was run by a trust in which MGR, his wife V N Janaki and their adopted son Ravindran were trustees.
After the death of all the trustees, Ravindran's wife, Nirmala Ravindran, was living in the house but had nothing to do with the trust.
She was the director of another company, Emgeeyar Pictures (Pvt) Ltd.
On receiving a notice, dated August 13, 2008, from the Tashildar Mambalam-Guindy Circle that her house would be attached if she failed to pay the money due from the magazine management, Ms Ravindran clarified she could not be held responsible for the dues.
However, she received another communication from the Collector of Chennai on September 25 saying the property and the articles in it would be attached.
Following this, she moved the Madras High Court seeking an interim injunction restraining the authorities from attaching the property.
Admitting the petition, Justice A Kulasekaran granted the interim injunction and ordered notice to the District Collector, Chennai, returnable within four weeks.
