On July 4, two children aged 14 and 9 complained to the police about a man who came in a black car behaved indecently at a park in Thrissur - the cultural capital of the state.
Soon the Thrissur West police got into the act and screened the CCTV visuals and managed to zero-in on the car. After reaching the accused's house they realised that it belonged to actor Sreejith.
A few years back, Palakkad police booked him in a similar case. But the actor alleged that the complainants misunderstood him and the case is baseless.
