Police claimed to have arrested a man for allegedly groping upcoming Malayalam actress Sanusha while she was travelling in a train on Wednesday night, said today.
The accused person hails from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu and is over 40-years-old, senior police officer updated PTI.
“While sleeping around 1am, I felt something on my lips which I later found a man in an opposite berth, who was trying to feel my lips. I then caught hold of his hand and twisted, he started begging to not make it an issue,” ANI quoted Sanushka as saying.
“Despite many others were around in the compartment including women, just two, Unni and Ranjith came to help me. I was screaming... It's sad how the others behaved,” the actress further said.
"Probably if I had put up a status on Facebook, there would have been many more people showing support, saying, 'I’m with Sanusha' and changing their display pictures. However, as a woman I want members of the community to stand up for me at times when such incidents happen, not just later on social media. It is really disheartening and I have lost faith in the society," Sanusha quoted as saying.
ANI further reported that the accused has been arrested.
