A day after popular Malayalam actress was allegedly abducted and molested by her driver in Ernakulam district of Kerala, the Director General of Police (DGP) Loknath Behera said they are investigating the case, adding they would get back to media after detailed study of the case.
“We have taken the best foot forward. We are investigating the case. I was told that these are all known people so we will do a good job in investigating that,” Behera told media here.
The other thing that how it happened, at what time it happened and under what circumstances it happened, I have to get the details. Something is clumsy somewhere, we are trying to find it out,” he added.
He further requested the media to work responsibly while reporting the case.
On being questioned about the law and order situation in Kerala, the DGP said: “We are not making a police state that everywhere I will go and check. That is not required in Kerala. I will not get into the details, let us get the fact then we will get back to you.”
Earlier in the day, a case of attempted rape was filed after the actress was allegedly abducted and molested last night.
Her former driver Martin, who worked with the actress for a day, has been arrested and another driver Sunil, who, according to police, is the prime accused, is absconding.
The incident, reportedly, took place while the victim was returning from a shoot, when Sunil and Martin forcefully entered the car and tried to take her pictures.
According to police, the actress was held in the car for an hour, after which, she was dropped near her residence at around 10.30 pm.
