The President of a right-wing organization was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly issuing a death threat and abusing through video the maker of the film 'Kaali' a poster which showed Goddess Kali smoking a cigarette, police said.
The president of the outfit - Sakthi Sena Hindu Makkal Iyakkam - targeted the filmmaker Leena Manimekalai for the poster, said the police.
Even as protests against Manimekhalai spread across the nation, Saraswati, a resident of the city, released the video condemning and threatening the filmmaker. This has gone viral on social media. Based on a complaint, a case against Sarawasti was registered and she was arrested, the police added.
