Court orders police to stop Anjani Putra screening

The 34th City Civil and Sessions Court on Thursday ordered the state police chief, Neelmani Raju, to direct all police commissioners and district superintendents of police to stop the screening of Puneeth Rajkumar-starrer Anjani Putra starting Friday.

The police chief on Thursday passed an order stopping screening of the movie.

The court order was passed on a contempt petition filed by G Narayanaswamy, a lawyer who said the film was being screened in 400 theatres across the state in violation of the court's directions to stop its screening until January 2.

He urged the court to order the DG&IGP to direct the police to stop the film's screening.

Narayanaswamy, along with a group of advocates, met Raju and sought immediate action.

The film released on December 21 but faced legal hurdles after three days as the court stayed its screening on a petition filed by a group of advocates who suggested that some dialogues in the movie had brought "disgrace" to lawyers.
