Nakkheeran Gopal seeks advance bail

Journalist Nakkheeran Gopal, 59, has filed an anticipatory bail petition in the Madras High Court apprehending arrest by cyber crime cell of the Central Crime Branch police in Chennai city for having published a series of news articles in his magazine Nakkheeran and also news videos on its YouTube channel regarding the Pollachi sexual abuse issue. Claiming that reports were published in good faith and larger public interest, the petitioner said: “The respondent police and the entire police force in the State of Tamil Nadu has been historically hostile towards the petitioner. The police machinery is waiting for an opportunity to pounce upon the petitioner. The purported case is a threat to the freedom of the press. “It is an attempt to muzzle the print media and exposure of crimes. The respondent police is acting in an atrocious manner at the instigation of the de facto complainant who is none other than Deputy Speaker of the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly… The cyber crime cell has no clue whatsoever regarding who committed the serial sexual crimes.”
