PCI seeks report from TN govt on arrest of cartoonist


The Press Council of India (PCI) has asked for a report from the Tamil Nadu government on the arrest of a freelance cartoonist for allegedly depicting Chief minister K Palaniswami in an obscene manner, the council said in a release today.

The PCI said it has “noted with concern” reports of the arrest of G Bala by the Tamil Nadu police.

Taking suo motu cognisance of the issue, the PCI Chairman has directed the government of Tamil Nadu through the Chief Secretary, the Secretary (Home), the Director General of Police to file a reply statement and a report on the facts of the case.

Bala was released on bail yesterday, a day after he was arrested in Chennai for allegedly depicting Palaniswami in an obscene manner, in a caricature on a recent incident of a couple setting its two kids on fire before committing self- immolation due to usury.
