Hours after three women manhandled YouTube vlogger Vijay P Nair for a video clip insulting women’s rights activists and feminists, police have registered a case against the women- veteran dubbing artist Bhagyalakshmi and activists Sreelekshmi Arackal and Diya Sana under IPC Sections 452 (house trespass), 323 (causing hurt), 392 (robbery), 294 (b) (using abusive language) and 506 (criminal intimidation) on a complaint from the vlogger. Of these, house trespass and robbery are non-bailable offences.
Nair had initially said he deserved the beating and refused to lodge a complaint. The women, who made him apologise for his offensive remarks, had seized his laptop and mobile phone and handed them over to police. Thampanoor station house officer inspector A Baiju said the FIR was filed around 11pm on Saturday after Nair changed his stance.
Earlier on Saturday, police had registered two cases against Nair, one with Thampanoor police and the other with Museum police. The case with Museum police was based on a complaint from Sreelekshmi before the city police cyber cell for the offensive video he posted on his YouTube channel, while the other one was for outraging the modesty of women when they reached his residence to talk about his offensive videos.
Meanwhile, police on Sunday registered yet another case against film director Santhivila Dinesh on a complaint from Bhagyalakshmi.
