South Indian actress and dancer Asha Sarath has joined a long list of actors at the receiving end of vicious cyber crime. The actor submitted a complaint to the Kochi Police Commissioner about a graphic video that has been doing the rounds on social media and messaging platforms claiming to be that of the actor's. “This was a purposeful act of defamation; police have handed over the details to cyber cell. I will go ahead legally that it defamed me and my family,” she said in a press release on Friday.   The actor however admitted that the cyber cell may never to able to track down the perpetrators, but she believes her complaint will act as a warning.   Police sources say that though the video clearly has some other woman on it, the description says it is Asha Sarath.    Asha became a household name in Kerala after starring in a popular serial called 'Kumkumapoovu'.
