Paternity tussle: Physical exam report says identification marks on Dhanush removed using laser tech

In the ongoing paternity tussle, the physical examination report submitted in the Madurai bench of Madras High Court on Monday revealed that the identification marks on actor Dhanush were removed using laser technology.

Two teams of doctors headed by the dean of the Government Rajaji Medical College in Madurai submitted the report on the examination done by them on the actor on February 28.

Justice PN Prakash adjourned the case to March 27 for further hearing after hearing the case in-camera in his chambers for nearly two hours.

Actor Dhanush filed a petition seeking to quash a maintenance case filed against him by a couple based at Melur near here.

The couple R Kathiresan (65) and his wife K Meenakshi (53) claimed the actor is their biological son who dropped out of school in Class XI and went to Chennai to pursue his interest in acting in 2002. The couple had filed the maintenance case before a Judicial Magistrate at Melur near here in November last, seeking a direction to the actor to pay a monthly maintenance of Rs. 65,000. They claimed him to be their son K Kalaichelvan who had changed his name to Dhanush.

It was only after the Magistrate issued summons to Dhanush, the present petition was filed in the Bench. Justice G Chockalingam, who heard the petition at the first instance, directed the actor to appear in the court to verify whether he had visible identification marks on his body as mentioned in the school transfer certificate of the couple’s son. Accordingly, the actor appeared before the High Court Bench on February 28 and he was subjected to physical examination by a government doctor to find out if he had a mole on his left collarbone and a scar on the left forearm. Subsequently, the judge stayed all further proceedings pending before the Magistrate until further orders and left the case to be handled by his successor.
