“Even an LKG child will say these documents are fabricated,” said Justice R Mahadevan. “You attached a photo available in the public domain. Do you think anyone can just walk in and initiate PIL proceedings,” the judge had said. “Don’t play with the court,” Justice Mahadevan cautioned the petitioner and directed the additional public prosecutor to verify the documents.
