Kochi : Actor-director Vijay Babu on Friday submitted plea for anticipatory bail in connection with rape case registered against him based on complaint from a Kozhikode native who claimed she was sexually abused many a time at the actor’s flat in Kochi.
Earlier, police issued lookout notice for Vijay Babu when he failed to appear for questioning following the the victim lodging a complaint with Ernakulam South police station on 22 April. Vijay Babu in fact flew his way out the country. He then appeared once on Facebook Live later and amid his version denying allegations, revealed the victim’s identity. The foolhardiness earned him a second case relating to the offence.
