Kochi  : From his hideout following molestation complaint, MLA Eldose Kunnapilli emerges on social media, calling the survivor a criminal in his Facebook post, repeating the post ten times straight. The post appeared early this morning on his unofficial page.

In his post, the MLA dubs the victim a ‘criminal’. Never expected matters to come this far, reads the post. The MLA also argues he did nothing unlawful. Scores of comments to that, including from his followers, asked why was the MLA then hiding.

Sexual Assaults On Promise Of Marriage
The survivor in her statement to Crime Branch and magistrate said the sexual assaults were done with MLA promising to marry her. What was a casual friendship over years changed to a more physical one since June last year. The MLA would often come into the house and bolt the door from inside, beat her at times and  sexually assault her, assuring the bond will culminate in marriage, the victim said in her testimony.
