Malayalam Actress Sanusha Alleges Sexual Harassment in Train. Sanusha was traveling to Thiruvananthapuram on the Maveli Express when Anto Bose, a native of Kanyakumari, allegedly attempted to molest her.
According to News18, the actress was molested by Anto Bose, a native of Kanyakumari. “At around 1 am, when I was asleep, I felt something on my lips. When I woke up, I saw that (the) man in the opposite berth was feeling my lips. I immediately caught hold of his hand and twisted it. At this time, he was begging me to not make this a big issue. I switched on the light immediately,” the report quoted Sanusha as saying.
“Only two passengers, writer Unni and one Ranjith, came to my help. There were many people, including women in the compartment, but no one came forward to help. 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,” The News Minute quoted Sanusha as saying.
Sanusha said she wanted others to take heart from her example in such situations and fight it out.
“I want to reveal myself and speak up because I want this to be an encouragement to other women to act when they are in such situations,” the actress is quoted as saying by News18.
The Thrissur railway police arrested the accused following the complaint filed by the actor.
“An FIR was filed under IPC section 354 and the accused has been produced at the court for further proceedings,” Thrissur Railway SI told TNM.
In a another case of sexual harassment, actor Amala Paul alleged that she was sexually harassed at her workplace and registered a complaint at the T Nagar police station in Chennai on Wednesday.
