Woman who manhandled security guard surrenders before police
Aluva: Police arrested a woman who surrendered after manhandling a security guard of a private hospital here. Kozhikode Koyilandi native Arya Balan (26), temporary warden of Kalamassery CUSAT ‘Ananya’ college hostel, surrendered before the police along with her lawyer.
Arya had manhandled Mavelikkara native Rinku (26) on October 1. Police charged a case for manhandling and talking abusively. However, the police could not arrest the accused due to her political influence. Later, when the visuals of her attacking the security guard went viral on social media, the police summoned her and arrested.
The woman tricked the police for three days claiming she would surrender at the station. Finally, she informed that she would surrender on Thursday. But her lawyer requested the police for more time. With this, the police told them they would arrest her from the hostel. Thus, Arya and her lawyer arrived at the Aluva station to surrender.
As police registered a criminal case against Arya Balan, departmental action is likely to be taken against her. Arya is working as the matron of ‘Ananya’ hostel for SC/ST students on three-year contract. Though the contract was due for next March, the case report will be handed over to CUSAT registrar.
