Madurai: Madras high court on Friday granted anticipatory bail to a salon owner who was booked on usury charges. Justice V Bharathidasan granted anticipatory bail to C Mohan, a resident of Melamadai in Madurai. Mohan was praised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his relief work during Covid-19 lockdown.
A case was registered against him by Anna Nagar police under Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Charging Exorbitant Interest Act. The prosecution stated that the petitioner had demanded exorbitant interest from a person who had borrowed money from him. Since the petitioner had demanded exorbitant interest even after the complainant repaid the money which he borrowed, he lodged a complaint against the petitioner on September 21. tnn
