Malayalam Actress Sanusha Molested On Train, Says Has Lost Faith In Society After Only 2 Passengers Came For Help

What hurt me most was that barring two people, no one raised a protest, Sanushka quoted as saying.

A man from Tamil Nadu has been arrested for groping upcoming Malayalam actress Sanusha when she was travelling in a train on Wednesday night, police said.

Speaking to PTI a police officer, attached to the special branch police in Thrissur said the arrested person hails from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu and is over 40-years-old.

"At around 1 am, when I was asleep, I felt something on my lips. When I woke up, I saw that (the) man in the opposite berth was feeling my lips. I immediately caught hold of his hand and twisted it. At this time, he was begging me to not make this a big issue. I switched on the light immediately," ANI quoted Sanushka as saying.

"Only two passengers, writer Unni and one Ranjith, came to my help. There were many people, including women in the compartment, but no one came forward to help. I was screaming... It's sad how the others behaved,” the actress further said.

"Probably if I had put up a status on Facebook, there would have been many more people showing support, saying, 'I’m with Sanusha' and changing their display pictures. However, as a woman I want members of the community to stand up for me at times when such incidents happen, not just later on social media. It is really disheartening and I have lost faith in the society," Sanusha quoted as saying.

ANI further reported that the accused has been arrested. 

"We have arrested the accused under IPC section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and he has been remanded to judicial custody till 15 February," PTI reported quoting an official.
