Thiruvanthapuram, June 27, 2022: Malayalam actor and producer Vijay Babu has been arrested in an alleged case of sexual assault.

He was arrested when he appeared before Ernakulam South police station for questioning. On June 22, he was granted anticipatory bail by the Kerala High Court. Vijay Babu was booked for sexual assault after a woman, who is also an actor, accused him of sexually abusing her for movie roles.

While granting the anticipatory bail plea, the Kerala HC asked him not to leave the state and to submit his passport.

The investigation team was given permission to question him starting Monday till July 3 from 9 am to 6pm. Yesterday, the Association for Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) extended support to him, saying any action would be taken only after the court’s judgement.

He is also accused of revealing the identity of the complainant, a young actor, through social media.

Vijay Babu had left for Dubai at the end of April, around the same time a woman filed a case of sexual assault against him. The actor fled the country after Kochi Police registered a case against him. Vijay Babu returned to Kochi on June 1, after being away from the country for 39 days.

The victim, in her complaint, had alleged that Vijay Babu had tortured her several times at his apartment in Ernakulam. He had also promised her better opportunities in the film industry.

“When I was incapable of saying yes or no consciously, he used my body as a tool for his pleasure. He has forced himself on me and even forced me into oral sex in a car against my will. I was in a state of shock, incapable of talking or responding,” the victim said on the Facebook post, where she revealed the incident.

However, Vijay Babu turned the tables on his accuser on April 26. The Mollywood icon went live on Facebook, alleging that it was the young woman who was torturing him and that he was the ’real victim’.
