Chennai: Madras High Court’s Madurai bench issued notices to Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly for endorsing online sports app advertisements.
The notices were issued by a bench consisting of Justices N Kirubakaran and B Pugalendhi. Notices were also issued to actors Prakash Raj, Tammana, Rana and Sudip Khan for similar infringements.
The case was filed advocate Mohammed Rizvi after some youth died by suicide in the state after losing money in such apps.
“The apps are in the name of IPL teams such as Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Rajasthan Royals (RR) and some apps are also in the name of state’s names. Are these teams playing on behalf of the state,” asked the bench.
