Kozhikode: Two Malayalam film actresses disclosed that they had been sexually assaulted on Tuesday at a movie promotion at the Kozhikode HiLite mall. A video of the incident has gone viral on social media platforms.
One of the actors wrote on Instagram, “Kozhikode is a place I loved a lot. However, tonight, as I was walking back after a show, someone in the crowd grabbed me. I’m embarrassed to mention where! Are those around us feeling this annoyance? As part of the promotion, we visited many places. But, I never had such a pathetic experience anywhere else. My colleague also had a similar experience.
She added, “We have visited numerous places in Kozhikode for the promotion of our event. But the event at the mall was packed and security personnel were struggling to control the crowd. When we were leaving, a guy misbehaved with my colleague, but she didn’t get a chance to react. The same thing happened to me and I reacted as you saw in the video. “
The other actress said she was shocked and didn’t know how to react.
Police said a probe has been in progress and all efforts are being made to identify and trace the culprits. A promotion event that took place at the same mall about a month ago was cut short due to huge crowd.
