Remove woman-child AIDS campaign posters: HC

Justice K Suguna recorded an undertaking by the Tamil Nadu AIDS Control Society on removing the posters of the woman who said that her family came close to being ostracised by relatives and neighbours after the publication of the photos.

The woman has also sought a public apology and a compensation of Rs 1 crore from the AIDS control society. Suguna also directed the counsels for the petitioner, D S Rajasekar and G Mohanakrishnan, to implead Sasi Advertising Agency, entrusted with the advertisement.

Counsel for the AIDS Control Society, R Rathnatara, submitted that the agency had purchased the photographs of the woman and the child from a copyright owner of a website.
