3 YouTubers booked over MG Sreekumar's complaint
Thrissur: Singer MG Sreekumar has filed a complaint with DGP against three YouTubers for attacking him through a video. As per the complaint, Cherpu police have initiated a probe and booked three YouTubers at Paralam panchayat here.
In the video uploaded on a YouTube channel, the trio alleged that Sreekumar, who was a jury member of a music reality show aired in a popular channel, had awarded the fourth prize to a candidate neglecting a deserving child.
As the child’s parents declared that they have no complaints against Sreekumar, the YouTubers deleted the video and issued an apology to the singer through another video.
But the video criticising Sreekumar has gone viral on social media as over 5 lakh people watched it.
Hence, Sreekumar filed a complaint to DGP alleging that the YouTubers aimed to personally insult him.
Cherpu police inspector TV Shibu has been probing the case.
