image Filmmaker and Naam Thamizhar Iyakkam supreme Seeman, who was arrested a few days ago on charges of making an ‘inflammatory speech’, has moved the Principal Sessions Judge court in Chennai seeking bail.

In his petition, Seeman said that his speech at a protest meeting within the limits of the North Beach Police Station was made only to express his dissent against the government for “not taking any action” in the matter relating to the killing of Tamil Nadu fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy.
