All legal actions taken against Mohanlal in the ivory case have been put on hold, according to the Kerala High Court. For those who are unaware, the aforementioned case concerns the actor’s illegal possession of artefacts made of ivory and elephant tusks. The Judicial First Class Magistrate Court (JFMC), Perumbavoor, was currently hearing the case. The interim order was issued by the High Court in response to a petition Mohanlal filed to have the case dismissed.
Due to Mohanlal’s possession of thirteen ivory artefacts and elephant tusks, a case was filed against him. The elephant tusks and artefacts made of ivory were taken from Mohanlal’s Kochi home by the Income Tax Department in 2011. In 2019, a chargesheet was submitted against Mohnalal and the other parties involved.
On November 3, the actor will now have to go before the court. According to reports, the stay will last about six months. Even in 2022, the Kerala state government attempted to end the case, but the magistrate court rejected their request. Justice PV Kunhikrishnan presided over a lone bench that issued the temporary injunction. The case has been a hot topic of conversation for years at this point.
