Tirunelveli (Tamil Nadu) [India], Nov 5 (ANI): Tamil Nadu police on Sunday arrested a cartoonist in connection with a caricature that allegedly depicted Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami in a distasteful manner.

The cartoonist, identified as Bala, was arrested after a defamatory case was registered against him.

Bala had allegedly portrayed the chief minister, the state's collector and police commissioner wearing nothing and covering their private parts with money, while a baby burns in front of them.

The caricature was published after a recent incident where a couple and two of their children self immolated at collectorate, alleging police inaction on usury complaint.(ANI)
