The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Tuesday issued notices to the Centre, Union Health Ministry and BCCI on a petition opposing the appearance of three Indian cricketers in an advertisement for a liquor company.
The notices, issued by a Division Bench comprising Justice JS Kehar and Justice SD Anand, have to be replied to by December 4.
The public interest litigation, filed by local advocate HC Arora, argued that the appearance of Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni in an advertisement for a liquor company would have adverse influence on cricket fans.
