Actress Shweta Menon was assaulted by Congress MP N Peethambara Kurup while she was attending a public function at Quilon. Shweta says that she has decided to file a complaint to the Kerala CM Oommen Chandy regarding the incident. This has put the alleged MP in trouble.
Shweta said that she had made a complaint to the collector and to the KPCC president after reaching the hotel, but the collector denied the statement and said that Shweta had not made any complaint to him.
After Shweta made the incident public, many have come forward supporting the actress including AMMA Persident Innocent, Lizy Jose and her husband Sreevalsan Menon. Sreevalsan said that the collector had not taken any action against the alleged MP N Peethambara Kurup and they have decided to file a complaint to the CM.
Shweta said that she is very much shocked by the statement made by the collector and said that she can never forget the unfortunate experience she had faced during the Presidents Trophy Boat Race, Quilon. Her husband said to the media that Shweta is very much disturbed by the act as well as the statement made by the collector and confirmed that they have decided to move legally. Shweta added, she has nothing to do with politics and is expressing emotions of a woman who has been molested in public!
Meanwhile, N Peethambara Kurup has denied the case against him and responded saying that he had not done the act of molesting the actress. But, the videos of the function clearly state that the molesting has been done by the MP.
