Kancheepuram, Apr 19 (UNI) Acting on a court directive, police have registered a case against a Cabinet Minister in Tamil Nadu and four others for allegedly denigrating Senior Kanchi Acharya Jayendra Saraswati in a digital banner and hurting the sentiments of Hindus.

The case was registered against Handlooms Minister V Somasundaram, Kancheepuram MLA Mythili Thirunavukkarasu, a municipal councillor and two others, under the Tamil Nadu Acquisition of Hoardings Act and Tamil Nadu Open Places (Prevention of Disfigurement) Act.

The move followed a directive issued by the Judicial Magistrate Court on a petition filed by Kanchi Mutt devotee Mahadevan.

The digital banner, put up by an AIADMK functionary to mark party supremo and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa's birthday in February last, depicted Jayendrar and his junior Vijayendrar in handcuffs.

The petitioner said this had hurt the sentiments of the Hindu and demanded action against the offenders.

The banner was later removed after vehement protests.
