Madras High Court dismisses case against Sachin Tendulkar

February 25, 2014 - Madurai

The Madras High Court Bench on Tuesday dismissed a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by a lawyer challenging the nomination of former cricket Sachin Tendulkar for Rajya Sabha.

The petitioner alleged that the accused had dishonoured the national flag by cutting a cake containing the imprint of the tricolour in Jamaica in 2011.

The Division Bench consisting of justices R Sudhakar and VM Velumani said that they did not find any reason to issue writ of quo warranto directing the Deputy Chairman as well as the Secretary General of the Rajya Sabha to show cause on it. They said that the petitioner had not submitted authenticated materials to substantiate his accusations.
