Malayalam actresses alleges sexual assault at mall in Kozhikode

In a shocking disclosure through her Instagram post, a popular Malayalam film actress said that she experienced sexual misconduct during a film promotion event at a mall in the north Kerala district.

Demonstrating her distress and concern over the "sexual frustration" of the people, the post said another actress also had a similar experience during the event held late on Tuesday night at the busy mall.

An alleged video of the shocking incident went viral on social media platforms soon and the local TV channels broadcasted the same.

"Kozhikode is a place I loved a lot. But, tonight while returning after a programme, a person from the crowd grabbed me. It disgusts me to say where! Are people around us so frustrated? We had been to several places as part of the promotion. But, I never had such a pathetic experience anywhere else.

My colleague also had a similar experience. She reacted...but I could not in that situation as I was dumbfounded for a moment...," the actress said in her post.

Another actress, who had been subjected to similar misbehaviour from the mob, also shared the harrowing experience through her Instagram handle.

The actress said the mall was overcrowded and security personnel were trying their best to manage the crowd.

A person had misbehaved with one of her co-stars however she could not react, the actress said.

"Later, I also encountered a similar experience but I reacted....I wish that no one has to face this kind of unwanted trauma in their life...," she said and wanted the guilty to be punished.

According to police, an investigation has been initiated and efforts are underway to identify and trace the person responsible.

A promotion event that happened at the same mall a month back had to be curtailed as the crowd gathered there to see their favourite actor became unmanageable.
