Coimbatore : The District Superintendent of Police, R Pandiarajan Monday ruled out the role of any politician in the sensational Pollachi sexual blackmail and harassment case of a teenager college girl.
Based on the complaint by the girl, rural police had arrested four persons–Thiruvakkarasu, Sabarirajan, Sathish and Vasanthakumar.
The case was that Sabarirajan had called a girl known to him, who entered in a waiting car, where three others were hiding. As the car was in motion, Sabarirajan tried to remove her clothes, which was being shot by Sathish.
As the girl refused to oblige to their desire, the four men started blackmailing her showing the video and threw her out of the vehicle after snatching a gold chain. They continued to blackmail her demanding money with the video.
Many political parties and leaders had raised the issue and blamed police for trying to protect some politicians and their heirs allegedly involved in the case.
To make the record straight, Pandiarajan met the press and clarified that there was no role for any politicians or their heirs and only the four accused were involved in it.
Stating that the department has recommended to the District Collector to detain all the four under Goondas act, Pandiarajan said that if there were more victims they can approach the department.
If necessary, a woman officer can be appointed to investigate the case, he said adding that stringent legal action will be taken against those spreading rumours with the regard to the case.
There were only four videos in the mobile phone seized from an accused, he said that three persons were arrested for assaulting the brother of the girl who had lodged the complaint.
