The Madras High Court today ordered to issue notices to Tamil Nadu police on a petition seeking to register a case against Union Minister V Narayanasamy for his remarks against slain LTTE chief V Prabhakaran and Naam Tamizhar Katchi leader Seeman.

The petitioner alleged that Narayanasamy had last month at Puducherry made come comments against Prabhakaran and Seeman.

The petitioner said the statement of Narayanasamy was "irresponsible, scandalous and derogatory" and it "promoted enmity between Tamil speaking and non-Tamil speaking people.

He had also sent a copy of the complaint to President, Prime Minister, Governor of Tamil Nadu and Chief Minister.
