CHANDIGARH: Guess who’s heard from Hari?
Job web site Naukri.com has received a legal notice from an 11-year-old boy claiming damages to the tune of Rs 1 crore for allegedly showing a part of his name in bad light, a report said.
The notice, sent by Aneesh Bhanot on behalf of his son Hari Bhanot, said that the advertisement is “totally insensitive to the name Hari.” It also charged that the advertisement has resulted in mental harassment and agony as many of Hari’s friends started poking fun at him.
Besides seeking the forthright withdrawal of the advertisement, the notice also wanted a public apology from the web site and Rs 1 crore as damages. Failing this, criminal and civil proceedings would be filed against the channel, the report said quoting the notice.
The advertisement showed a person explaining his boss’s name, Hari, to another over the telephone as, “H for Hitler, A for Arrogant, R for Rascal and I for Idiot.”
