Kerala film stars protest against the attack on actress

“I will not make any comment on that,” said Behra, referring to reports that the accused were nabbed from a court.
“I have said before also that investigation is not a magic wand. Sometimes it takes time to get the accused and we did our best and now we have them,” he said.

Few days back popular Malayalam film actress was abducted for a while on way from Thrissur to Kochi on Friday night by some people who reportedly took pictures of her to blackmail her. Her driver is suspected of involvement and has been taken into custody on that day itself .

The Nedumbassery police have registered a case under sections of kidnapping and molestation.

The hugely popular actress on Friday night after a shoot was on way from Thrissur to Kochi to take part in the dubbing of her new film directed by director-cum-actor Lal.

While on way, a car hit her vehicle from behind, following which an argument erupted over the accident. The passengers of the other car forcefully entered her car and drove off with the actress.

The gang behind the incident is from the film industry and involved in doing various production jobs, police said. Bhavana was held hostage for two hours. According to reports, the gang took pictures of the actress that they planned to use to blackmail her for money.

The police, after tracing the call list, zeroed down on the actress’ former driver who was thrown out after she came to know of his criminal background. He is believed to be the main culprit.

After being held hostage by the criminal gang, the actress managed to reach the home of Lal, who informed the police.

Speaking to reporters, Lal said he has been advised by the police probe team not to speak about the incident as it would hamper the investigation.

The actress for a while was not having the best of relations with a group in the Malayalam film industry, and the group had scuttled a few good roles that she was offered, according to reports.

The police are looking into all aspects of the incident and will probe if this was a planned move against the actress.
