A Chennai-based actor went live on Facebook alleging sexual harassment by a senior journalist.
She alleged that journalist Prakash M Swamy had been harassing her over the past few years.
The actress said she turned to Facebook as her last resort to seek assistance since police, including the Commissioner, and cyber crime cell officials allegedly failed to take action on her complaint.
In a 8-minute video, she claimed that Swamy had sent inappropriate messages to her on WhatsApp.
"I went to the Commissioner of Police and told him that this man is troubling me since two years, sends me very dirty Whatsapp and tried to physically abuse me when he came to my house", said the actorin the video.
She claimed that she didn't get help from anywhere and was being juggled from one department to another.
She said Swamy has been accused of sexual harassment by various other women earlier too but he managed to get away using high-profile contacts.
"Several women have inboxed me and sent audios claiming sexual harassment (by him)," she said.
Swamy describes himself as "United Nations correspondent" on Twitter.
The journalist has denied the allegations. NDTV quoted him as saying, "I never visited her house nor did I sexually harass her. Even for argument's sake had I visited her, why did she keep quiet for so long?"
