The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to entertain plea of music director Vishal Dadlani who had got into a controversy for making a ‘naked’ remark on noted Jain monk Tarun Sagar on twitter.The Supreme Court refused to quash the FIRs and asked Dadlani to move his plea to Bombay High Court.
A Bench comprising Justices Gopala Gowda and AK Goel also rejected his plea for protection against arrest at least for five days and advised his counsel Karuna Nandhi to approach the high court and exhaust all legal options before coming to Supreme Court.
The music director had already apologised for his remarks. Karuna Nandhi, however pleaded that much was sought to be made out of a 140-character tweet on political grounds. The bench in its statement said it would not be proper for it to entertain criminal writ petitions on such issues, bypassing high courts.
