New Delhi: The Supreme Court of India has dismissed the demand for an inquiry against expatriate businessman and Padma Shri awardee, Sundar Menon, regarding allegations of obtaining various identity cards under different names. The court also issued a warning to Balasubramaniam, a resident of Thiruvambady, of ordering a fine of Rs 10 lakh. Following the court's warning, Balasubramaniam withdrew the petition.

The complaint against Sundar Menon alleged that he had been using multiple identification documents, such as passports, PAN cards, and voter ID cards, under different names. Balasubramaniam approached the court, seeking an investigation into the matter, claiming that the utilisation of identity documents in different names was an attempt to evade taxes.

Representing Sundar Menon, his lawyers vehemently denied the allegations. A bench comprising Justices S Ravindra Bhat and Dipankar Dutta expressed scepticism about the petitioner's intentions.
