Although it is against the law, Vijay Babu not only revealed the name of the accuser but also went on to say that he would file a defamation case against her. “I haven’t done anything wrong. I’m the victim in this. The so-called law of this country protects her and she is at ease while I’m the one who is suffering. I will file defamation and a counter-case. It won’t be a small case. I won’t let her get away that easily. I can share all the proof with me but I won’t because I don’t want to cause damage to her family.”
Meanwhile, the actress has lodged a complaint that Vijay Babu sexually assaulted her multiple times with a promise of giving her prominent roles in films. The Police have still not started an investigation into the matter. Official updates from the Police team is still awaited.
Cases of #MeToo and sexual assault have been regular in the Mollywood film industry now. Recently a woman who assisted Liju Krishna in his productions, has charged him with sexual assault. Similarly, the 2017 actress sexual assault case involving Dileep is currently being heard in court.
