A court in Ramanathapuram has issued a bailable arrest warrant against Tamil film director Cheran and his daughter in a cheque bounce case after they did not respond to summons issued twice earlier.

Judicial Magistrate N Veluchamy issued the warrant on Thursday on a petition by C Palaniappan, a distributor for Cheran's Cinema 2 Home (C2H).

The magistrate had issued summons to Cheran and his daughter twice earlier, but they failed to appear in the court.

The petitioner had submitted that the cheque, given by Cheran last year for Rs 8.4 lakh toward return of advance paid by him (petitioner) under an agreement to distribute original DVDs under the C2H, was dishonoured by the bank thrice.

Palaniappan had sought the return of the advance as only one film was released under C2H as against the assured four under the agreement.
