A south Indian actress, Sanusha, was allegedly groped by a man while she was sleeping in a train in Kerala on Wednesday night. The accused has now been arrested, police said. The incident, reportedly, took place when the actor was travelling from Kannur to Thiruvananthapuram.

Speaking to IANS a police official attached to the special branch police in Thrissur said the arrested person hails from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu and is over 40 years age.

“The Thrissur Railway Police has registered a case and the person is in custody,” a police official said, declining to be identified.

The actress on Thursday told media, “I caught the hand of the man and turned on the light in the train. What hurt me most was that barring two people, no one raised a protest.”

“I stood my ground and moved only after the police came and took away the man. I know that now I have to go through a legal process and I am happy that I have the full support of my family. My advise to women and girls is they should react immediately and not delay it,” the actress added.

The actress started her career as a child artiste. Sanusha is busy in the south Indian film industry and has acted in over 40 films and in numerous popular TV serials so far.
