Web Desk‌Updated: Friday Apr 29, 2022

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.
