The Madras High Court has now made him hoist the national flag every day for a week, salute it and also sing the anthem under police watch.
In compliance of the court directions, Mr. Kennedy began hoisting the national flag on the government hospital campus in the presence of police personnel.
However, the petitioner’s counsel contended that he was attending an urgent call from the office of Director of Medical Services and did not mean to insult either the flag or the national anthem.
He, however, ordered that the petitioner hoist the flag at the hospital for a week, salute it and also sing the anthem under the supervision of the Inspector of Ambur Town Police Station.
The Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of a Government Hospital at Ambur in Vellore district was caught on camera talking on his mobile phone when the national anthem was played on August 15.
