Namitha was mobbed on Sunday while she was taking part in a private function, a textile showroom launch, in Pudukottai near Trichy. She was surrounded by her avid fans who want to get a closer look and touch their heartthrob. It has been reported that some of them manhandled the actress, which caused her minor injuries.
As the actress was mobbed by her wild fans, she cried out for help. Since the organizers were unable to control the crowd, the local police immediately rushed to the spot and used mild lathi charge to disperse the crowd.
A relieved Namitha was rescued from the podium, and later she inaugurated the showroom. After that, she was sent back to her hotel to take rest.
Earlier, many leading actresses, including Jyothika, have had similar harrowing experiences while participating in private functions.
