Non-Bailable Arrest Warrant Against Hero Vishal

In a shocking development, a non-bailable warrant (NBW) has been issued against actor Vishal. The arrest warrant was issued by a local Chennai court in the case filed by the Income Tax Department over the non-payment of TDS by his production house Vishal Film Factory for a period of five years.

Apparently, Vishal was summoned to appear in front of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court-II (ACMM-II) and the actor failed to appear before the judge in related to case. With this, justice S Malarmathi has issued an arrest warrant against Vishal.

Vishal's counsel submitted to judge Malarmathi that the actor did not received any summons in connection to the case, the public prosecutor for Income Tax department Sheela argued that how did the accused's counsel file a memo of appearance and a petition to condone the absence of the accused.

Public prosecutor Sheela has also submitted the acknowledgment for the receipt of summons by accused Vishal and argued that this was the second such summon sent to Vishal and still he has avoided to attend.

Income Tax Department's counsel has urged for the issue of a non-bailable warrant against the accused. The court recorded the submissions of both the counsels and concurred with the submissions of public prosecutor M Sheela and issued the NBW against Vishal.

According to Income Tax Department, Vishal-owned Vishal Film Factory located in Vadapalani had deducted TDS from the employees and it hadn't remitted the deducted TDS into the government account for the last 5 years. The IT department had carried out a raid in 2017 against Vishal Film Factory.

It is learnt that the Income Tax department had sent several notices to Vishal to appear before it but the actor failed to do so. With this, finally, the IT department knocked the court's door and issued summons from the court on July 24 by ACMM. Now, justice has adjourned the case to Aug 28.
