Explanation sought in petition seeking ban on screening of movie
Kerala HC directed that both the state and central government must be given notice in the petition filed by Edappally native Advocate Sebin Thomas seeking a ban on the screening of the movie ‘Kurup’, a movie revolving around the life of long-wanted Indian fugitive Sukumara Kurup.
The petition filed stated that the movie is a violation of the right to privacy of Sukumara Kurup. The division bench headed by Chief Justice S Manikumar and Justice Shaji P Chaly is considering the petition.
