The case against her was registered based on a complaint filed by Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) leader and former Member of Vanni Arasu. The Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front had filed a complaint against Mitun.

She was booked under seven provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe of Atrocities Act for the casteist remarks she made in a Twitter video, which had gone viral.

In the video, actress Meera Mithun purportedly said, “I am not speaking ill about members of the SC community. However, the members of the community face problems mostly because of their involvement in illegal activities and crimes.”

She had said that in the movie industry, SC directors and other people from the community do “cheap things”.

“It is time to chuck out all the SC directors and other people from the film industry,” she said.

VCK chief and Memebr of Thol Thiruvamavalavan had shared the video on his Instagram and stated that both the actor and her interviewer should be booked by the police.

Reportedly, the actor was booked under sections 153, 153A(1)(a), 505(1)(b), 505 (2) of IPC, and several sections under the SC/ST of Atrocities Act. The Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front is a co-complainant in the petition against her.
