A particular case that rattled the Malayalam cine industry in 2017 was the abduction and sexual assault of the prominent Malayalam actress Bhavana. The subsequent case pointed fingers towards another prominent actor, Dileep, and the case has been ongoing. The major evidence in the case is the memory card which is said to have the visuals of the attack. 

Recently, Bhavana filed a plea to the High Court, requesting a special investigation into the alleged illegal access of the memory card, which was under judicial custody. In the latest update, the actress has put out a statement via her social media, where she mentions that the illegal access is quite shocking and that it is scary to know that her privacy is not currently safe in the court.

Bhavana promises to continue the fight till she gets justice

The actress put out a statement on social media, where she mentioned that the High Court had directed the Sessions Court to give her access to a copy of the investigation carried forward. The actress mentioned that the report was tragically shocking.

She mentioned that privacy is a fundamental right of every citizen. Bhavana added that the fact that the hash value of the memory card (which contained visual evidence) was altered several times was practically denying the constitutional right that she, as a citizen, has. Furthermore, the actress said, ‘And it is very scary to know that my privacy is not currently safe in this court. When such a fault occurs on the Court’s side, it is the victims who rely on it that lose their strength. On the other hand, the predators will be able to walk around with pride, which is quite saddening.’

She mentioned that the judicial system in our country is the last hope for every Indian citizen, and she believes that it will not lose its purity. The actress added that she will continue her journey.
