A court in nearby Tirupur on Tuesday issued arrest warrants against DMDK leader Vijayakant and his wife Premalatha after they repeatedly failed to appear before it in a defamation case filed against them.

Principal District Judge Alamelu Natarajan ordered the arrest warrants against the two as they failed to appear before the court for the past three hearings and did not turn up on Tuesday also.

Public Prosecutor K N Subramaniam had filed the case against Vijayakant and Premalatha for allegedly making defamatory remarks against Chief Minister Jayalalithaa at a public meeting in Palladam on November 6, 2015.
