Congress MP booked for ‘molesting’ actress

Shweta is understood to have mentioned the names of two persons,including Kollam MP Kurup.

Kollam Police on Sunday registered a case against Congress MP N Peethambara Kurup for allegedly molesting Malayalam actress Shw-eta Menon. Menon,who was allegedly molested by Kurup at the President’s Boat race event at Kollam two days back,gave her statement to police on Sunday.

A police team from Kollam,including a woman Circle Inspector arrived here at 9 AM and recorded Shweta’s statement at her residence. The actress reportedly broke down while the statement was being recorded. The police team refused to disclose the details. Shweta is understood to have mentioned the names of two persons,including Kollam MP Kurup,who has denied the charge. On Saturday night Shweta had told reporters after meeting office bearers of various film industry bodies that she would send a detailed complaint to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy,whom she is likely to meet on Tuesday.

Her statement was recorded by police on a complaint by DYFI,the youth wing of CPM. Shweta has so far not named her tormentor,saying all details are in the complaint and she was pained that Collector B Mohan had “ignored” her charge when informed about it.
