Plea in HC demands to seize ivory from actor Mohanlal
Kochi: In a major setback to actor Mohanlal, a petition was moved before the Kerala High Court demanding to seize the ivory and the artefacts made of ivory, possessed by him. Pathanamthitta native Jamesh Mathew has moved the petition before the High Court.
In the petition Jamesh requested the court to direct the government to seize the ivories from the actor.
“Police official in ADGP rank should probe the forest department’s action to issue ivory possession certificate to the actor. The court should monitor the probe,” requested the petitioner.
“Also the court should direct the government to seize the 13 artefacts made of ivory and cancel the ivory possession certificate issued to Mohanlal,” read the petition.
The petitioner also sought to book Mohanlal for illegal possession of artefacts made of ivory.
