Kerala CM extends protection to actress

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan termed the incident of harassment of a South Indian actress as one that should not have been happened and extended all support and protection to her.

In a Facebook post, Vijayan said he had a telephonic talk with the actress. "What had happened is one that should not have been happened.. there is no need for her to have anxiety about future. All support and protection will be given to her," he said. The culprits involved in the crime would be brought before law," he said.

Vijayan said the government would deal sternly with crimes against women and children. The government is also committed to extending protection for victims of such crimes, he said.

The actress was allegedly abducted and harassed by a gang of five men, who forced their way into her car before fleeing in a busy area here on Friday night as she was returning from a film shoot in Kochi on Friday last.  The incident had triggered widespread condemnation from all sections of society.
