The so-called law of this country protects her and she is at ease while I’m the one who is suffering. I will file defamation and a counter-case. It won’t be a small case. I won’t let her get away that easily. I can share all the proof with me but I won’t because I don’t want to cause damage to her family."

Babu said that he would move a complaint against the actor for tarnishing his image. “I would file a defamation case against the complainant. Let it be the beginning of a new ‘Me Too’. Let us start a new fight.’’

The accuser claimed that Vijay Babu had sexually assaulted her many times promising her to give roles in films. The police have not yet been able to question him on the matter. More details about the case will be revealed further.
