Malayalam actor Sreejith Ravi arrested under POCSO Act
Thiruvananthapuram, July 7, 2022
Malayalam actor Sreejith Ravi was arrested in Thrissur on Thursday under the POCSO Act on charges of alleged indecent exposure.
Sreejith, son of popular actor T. G. Ravi was arrested for a similar offence in 2016, but he managed to wriggle out after the police allegedly registered the case under flimsy grounds.
On July 4, two children aged 14 and 9 complained to police about a man who came in a black car and allegedly behaved indecently at a park in Thrissur - the cultural capital of the state.
Soon the Thrissur West police got into the act and screened the CCTV visuals and managed to zero in on the car. After reaching the accused's house they realised that it belonged to Sreejith.
He was taken into custody and a detailed probe into the case has been launched.
Forty-six-year-old Sreejith is a mechanical engineer by profession and also holds a degree in management. He entered the Malayalam film industry in 2005 and has acted in over 70 films.
