Chennai, Tamilnadu, March 29, 2012

Ms. Ranjitha filed criminal defamation complaints against Sun TV and their two Tamil dailies, Dinakaran and Tamil Murasu, before the Third Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, Bangalore in December 2011, for recklessly defaming her through false articles and the morphed video allegedly linking her to her Guru Paramahamsa Nithyananda in March 2010. Advocates P.Nehru and Murugaiya Babu filed the petitions on behalf of Ms.Ranjitha. By the sheer gravity of the offence, the Hon'ble Chief Magistrate has taken cognizance and issued summons to the three accused parties. The accused list includes Vijay Kumar (CEO, Sun TV), Saxena (former CEO, Sun TV), Jothiswaran (Program Manager, Sun TV), K. Vijayakumar (Editor and Publisher, Dinakaran and Tamil Murasu Tamil daies), R. M. R. Ramesh (Editor and Publisher, Dinakaran and Tamil Murasu Tamil daies)

Ms.Ranjitha is taking action against sections of the media that have abused her consistently with no regard to truth or ethical reporting.
