If this person has committed a crime, it should be exposed at the earliest. Also, if he is innocent as he has claimed, that also should come out at the earliest, said the actress.

The Malayalam film actress, who was abducted and molested in February, on Thursday said she had personal issues with the arrested actor Dileep which put an end to their friendship. She denied having any business dealings with him. The actress was reacting to the arrest of Dileep, who is facing conspiracy charges in the case.

In a release to the media, she said the news about the actor’s arrest had shocked her. “I haven’t tried to make anyone an accused in the case out of personal animosity. I have not dropped any hint about any name. I had acted with this actor in several films. It is true that there had been some personal issues between us and later that friendship collapsed.” The actress said she was ready to submit any document required for the investigation. “There had been no property dealings or financial transactions between us, as is being spread in the media.”

“If this person has committed a crime, it should be exposed at the earliest. Also, if he is innocent as he has claimed, that also should come out at the earliest,” she added. Meanwhile, the police took the statement of actor Aju Varghese, booked for disclosing the name of the assaulted actress on social media. They also seized Varghese’s cellphone, with which he had allegedly posted the social media message. He was charged under Section 228 A of the IPC (disclosure of identity of the victim of certain offences).

    The issue is that every mallu man thinks he is a minister. He thinks he can take the law into his hands and he can direct the social narrative. this leads to all the issues the state is facing on the social front. Hope the new generation will not follow in the foot steps of the old.

      The mollywood needs to be cleaned up - the supposed leaders such as Mohanlal, Mammootty, Manju etc should take the lead. They should start by declaring that they shall work only with those who follow organised processes, demand that all proceedings of AMMA and other associations be made public, offer legal support to every colleagues who complains of any harassment etc.

        two ladies ed actor life, when on public domain principles should be there in your heart, should not impose to everyone and wherever money, celebrations involved attraction is common, controlling the matter is upto individual, instead correcting lead to the jail.. such a good actor today in pathetic condition due to two ladies....... and he had struggled a lot to reach to the stage today whatever he is today.

          Curious Onlooker, It is by Law that victim's name shouldnt be disclosed. No, you nor me have any right in this matter. What right do you have over another person?

            Perhaps I phrased it wrongly. There is no question of right to invasion of one's privacy. As the actress is now connected with certain issues that are now public knowledge and prompted the police investigation leading to the arrest of certain prominent individuals, the public have a justifiable interest in knowing the name of the central figure involved. In the matter of disclosure of names, both men and women are en led to be treated with same confidentiality of rule.

              This is a lesson for everyone - whoever feels, they are the perfect and super, and can do anything over money power, they should understand that ONE GOD is above us, he is watching everything. He is looking for a correct time to arrest. He will not give any intimation. His attack will be sudden. So , be obey him. be love him and be with him and follow HIS path. Om Shanti.

                If the victim had been a lesser person, her name would have been disclosed much sooner and earlier. A celebrated film star's name was allowed to be named in public without any qualms merely on police investigation without a Court's verdict to justify its findings. Why the double faced treatment where the woman was concerned ? The public has a right to know her name.
