Kerala's Ottappalam police on Friday recorded the arrest of Malayalam actor Sreejith Ravi, for allegedly flashing his private parts at a group of school girls in Ottappalam in Palakkad district.
The actor was on Thursday evening taken into custody based on a complaint filed by the school principal, acting upon what almost 15 girl students witnessed.
Sreejith’s arrest was recorded after the students identified the actor using photographs.
Ottappalam Sub-Inspector Adam Khan told The News Minute that the actor has been booked under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POSCO).
He was produced in Palakkad additional district sessions court on Friday, post medical examination.
According to the complaint, on August 27, a man in a car stopped his car, showed off his private parts and took photographs of the girls, before driving off when the girl students raised alarm.
The complainants had not named the actor, but had only mentioned the vehicle number in the complaint.
Sreejith Ravi had denied any involvement in the incident. Though he admitted that the vehicle number mentioned in the FIR belongs to him, he said that the students might have made a mistake while noting down the vehicle number.
