Kochi: Leading young Mollywood actress has revealed that she was physically assaulted and stalked by two men in a shopping mall at Kochi.
“Two men walked past me in a generously spaced aisle which barely had people crowding and one of them not so accidently grazed his hand on my back while walking past me” wrote the actress in her Instagram stories.
She expressed her disappointment and anger about the fact that she couldn’t react immediately against those men who misbehaved with her. The actor further revealed that the two men followed her and her sister in the shopping mall and even had the audacity to come up and get close with them after the incident.
“My sister saw this very clearly as she was standing not so far away. She came to me and asked if I was okay. I was clearly not. The fact that it looked deliberate even for her made it clear that I was not imaging this. I was blank for a minute trying to process this. I walked towards them but they completely ignored me. I made sure that he knew I understood and they both left the aisle immediately.
Being a woman has been very tiring, to be on guard every minute as you step out of your house. To watch my cloths when I bend and turn. To guard my chest with my arms in a crowed. The list goes on. And on the days I’m home, I worry about my mother, my sister and my friends who have to do the same things. It is all because of these sick men. You take away our safety. You take away our comfort and the joy of our womanhood. I despise you. To the men reading this, if you have ever done anything remotely inappropriate to a woman know that you are the most lowest form of life and you don’t deserve anything but hell. I hope and pray you will never get away with these things like those two men today. And to all the women reading this. I hope you have the courage that I didn’t have today to give a tight slap on the face of such men”, wrote the actress .
The Kerala State Women’s Commission took a Suo Moto case on the incident as the actress refrained from filing any official complaints on the incident.
