Its my voice, but I spoke to a man, not woman: Vinayakan
Kochi: Actor Vinayakan has admitted his involvement in the case for talking indecently over phone. However, he firmly stated that he talked to a man and not a woman.
Vinayakan told the police that it was in fact his voice that was being heard in the recorded phone conversation.
Kalpetta police had charged a case based on the complaint filed by the woman that Vinayakan talked indecently to her over phone. Police also moved to arrest him based on her statement. Later, Vinayakan appeared in the station where he was granted bail after arrest.
Vinayakan also said that he does not know the woman who filed the complaint. The police have approached the cyber cell for obtaining more details regarding the phone record and it is yet to be received.
The woman in her complaint alleged that when she phoned Vinayakan to invite him for a programme, he verbally abused her.
Earlier, a police official had said the case was registered against the "Thottappan" actor under IPC sections 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and 294 (B) (uttering obscene words) and section 120 (O) (causing nuisance to any person by repeated or undesirable or anonymous calls) of the Kerala Police Act.
The complainant is a native of Kottayam. Though the woman had lodged the complaint in Kottayam, it was transferred to the police station here as the alleged incident happened there, the official added.
