Kochi: Additional Director General of Prosecution Gracious Kuriakose informed the Kerala High Court that producer and actor Vijay Babu, who is accused of sexual abuse by a former colleague, has called the survivor’s mother by phone and threatened her.

Vijay Babu had fled to Dubai knowing that a case will be registered against him soon. The accused has filed an anticipatory bail by concealing that he is abroad and hence his petition remains invalid, said Gracious Kuriakose. However, the suspect’s lawyer explained that Vijay Babu, who has submitted another plea based on the documents filed against him, has mentioned that he was in Dubai.

Vijay Babu has informed that he had left for Goa for a film shooting on April 22 and from there flew to Dubai for the procedures of obtaining a Golden Visa. His lawyer stated that he was unaware of the case during this period and his UAE trip was not intended to evade legal proceedings. But the prosecution rebuked this and asserted that Vijay Babu was fully aware of the case while escaping to Dubai.

He had threatened the survivor’s mother through phone call on April 19. The prosecution pointed out that his address in Kollam was given in the anticipatory bail plea and he had not mentioned that he was in Dubai while filing the plea. It was only later he filed another plea stating he was abroad.

The court had directed to conduct another hearing over the allegations raised against the accused. Vijay Babu’s lawyer asserted that the relation of the accused with the survivor was consensual. He claimed that the complainant had arrived for the inauguration ceremony of a clinic owned by Vijay Babu even after the date in which she accused Vijay Babu of assaulting her. The hearing will continue on Monday.

Vijay Babu has told the High Court recently that he will return on Monday.
