Babu is facing sexual harassment case
Let us tell you that a case of physical abuse was registered against the actor on 22 April. However, later Vijay Babu had declared himself innocent by coming on Facebook Live and in this case he had also approached the Kerala High Court for further bail. He claimed that all this was an attempt to blackmail him.
Vijay Babu claiming to be innocent
Producer-turned-actor Babu, in his plea, said the “current practice” was that any person could make sexual allegations against anyone for the purpose of publicity and tarnish the image of a popular figure in the society. The actor said in his complaint, “Police are also guided by media reports and due to pressure of the same want to finish the chapter by arresting the petitioner for the purpose of coming in the news.” He claimed he was innocent and was “extremely saddened” by the one-sided approach of the authorities to make him a ‘scapegoat’ for news and media purposes.
