Former office-bearers of the South Indian Film Artistesâ€™ Association, or the Nadigar Sangam, R. Sarathkumar, Radharavi and Vaagai Chandrasekar were permanently ousted from the organisation over corruption allegations against them.
Prior to their permanent suspension, Sarath Kumar and Radha Ravi had filed a petition in the Madras High Court against their interim suspension and for not allowing them to participate in the AGM.
The case came up for hearing on Monday. The Madras High Court judge closed the case with regard to their temporary suspension and has directed them to file a fresh petition in the same court regarding their permanent suspension.
The decision to expel them was taken unanimously during the 63rd general council meeting held last Sunday.
Addressing the media after the meeting, actor and General Secretary Vishal said that a resolution was passed during the meeting to suspend Sarath Kumar and Radharavi, and the decision is legally valid. The decision was taken reportedly because of complaints of misappropriation of Sangam funds by the two actors in the past.
