The AIADMK on Sunday sought legal action against those responsible for the publication of the controversial article on the Sri Lankan government website recently. Representatives of the party’s legal wing met DGP K Ramanujam and sought action under Section 66A of the Information Technology Act.
AIADMK legal wing secretary A Navaneethakrishnan presented the petition seeking action to the DGP. “We have sought legal action against the journalist who wrote the piece as well as the Sri Lankan government officials responsible for putting it up on the website,” he told Express.
“Under the IT Act, there are no international boundaries, and we have called for action against those involved in this inappropriate and annoyance of an article,” Navaneethakrishnan added, saying the DGP has promised to take appropriate action.

What legal action? Then the SL Government should file a case against the Congress party and Tamil Nadu for training terrorists against Sri Lanka.

Hi. i am from India, Bangalore. Friend, some scrupulous politicians in Tamilnadu doing all this crap and dramas. That all. Nothing serious honestly. Most of Indians do not support these kindergarten types of acts. Relax :-)
