Kochi : The arrest of actor -director Vijay Babu will not be hampered by anticipatory bail, said Police Commissioner. It is expected for Vijay to turn himself in to police. A notice summoning his appearance for questioning has been stuck at his residence, the Commissioner added.
Vijay Babu is wanted in a case of rape booked against him following complaint by a young woman from Kozhikode who said she was raped several times in the actor’s flat in Kochi on promise of role in his films. Vijay went absconding after the news broke of his alleged sexual exploits. Police believe he has fled overseas from where he has moved lawyers to plea for anticipatory bail.
Vijay also landed himself a second case after naming the victim on his Facebook Live.
