Madurai, Mar 2 (UNI) The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court today ordered issuance of notice to M K Azhagiri, son of DMK President M Karunanidhi, on a petition challenging his discharge in the video piracy case.
Mr Justice R Raghupathy, ordered the issuance of notice returnable in three weeks, when the review petition of the anti-video-piracy cell of the state police came up for hearing.
