Kochi city police on Monday arrested actor Vijay Babu for allegedly raping a young actor. As the Kerala High Court had granted him anticipatory bail in the case, he will be released on bail.

Kochi deputy city police commissioner U V Kuriakose said Babu’s arrest was recorded. He would be taken to various places in Kochi, where the alleged rape had taken place, as part of evidence collection.

While granting anticipatory bail to Babu, the high court had permitted the police to question him from June 27 to July 3 from 9am to 5pm.

The court had directed that if the police were to arrest the actor-producer, he should be released on bail bond of Rs 5 lakh, with two solvent sureties each of a like sum.

He should not indulge in any form of attack through social media or other modes against the accuser or her family. He should not leave Kerala without the permission of the jurisdictional court, it added.

The case against the actor was registered on April 27. Subsequently, he fled the country fearing arrest. He returned to Kochi in the last week of May, after the high court granted him protection from arrest.

After returning from the Middle East, Babu had turned up before the police for questioning and said that he had a consensual relationship with the accuser.

He alleged that the actor had turned against him after she failed to get roles in his films. While seeking anticipatory bail, Babu had furnished his social media chats with the woman to substantiate his claim.

Babu has also been booked for revealing the identity of his accuser on social media. The high court had rejected his anticipatory bail plea in the second case after it observed that the offences against him were bailable.

Vijay Babu Controversy

On 22 April 2022, a newcomer actress from the Malayalam film industry accused Vijay Babu of sexual and physical abuse over the past two months in the guise of friendship and guidance, and subsequently registered a criminal case which is currently being investigated. 

In response, he left India and is suspected to be in Dubai, with Indian police having issued a look out circular for him at the airports and planning to search his properties for evidence. In a Facebook Live stream four days later, Babu denied the accusations, claiming to be “the one who is suffering” and stating he would contersue for defamation.

While his action received criticism, various men’s rights groups came in support of him quoting the one-sided nature of law when it comes to such allegations. Activists like Rahul Easwar and Mithun Vijay Kumar announced MenToo movement on various platforms to protect the actor from media trial and demanded a gender neutral form of justice.

Notably, he named his accuser in the video despite knowing it is illegal under Indian law, leading to him additionally being charged under IPC Section 228A for violating the victim’s anonymity and criticism from supporters of sexual assault survivors. 

While the internal complaint commission of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) recommended that Babu be expelled, the organisation ultimately did not do so, instead accepting a letter from him distancing himself from the executive board.

In response to this inaction, four members (Maala Parvathy, Kukku Parameswaran, Shweta Menon and Hareesh Peradi) criticized AMMA’s stance and left the association.
