Kochi: The Kerala high court on Monday asked whether the physical interaction between the complainant and the accused MLA, Eldhose Kunnappilly, was consensual. The court orally observed that the complaint sounds like a film story.

HC said, while going through the complaint, the duo seemed to have had consensual relationship.

The comments were made while the court was considering the plea of the complainant to cancel the anticipatory bail given to Eldhose. The complainant was also present in court.
