New Delhi (ILNS): YouTuber Vijay P. Nair had moved to the Kerala High Court challenging the anticipatory bail applications of Bhagyalakshmi, Diya Sana and Sreelakshmi Arakkal. The two who had alleged assailed Nair for his objectionable remarks against women in his videos, has had a case filed against them and they had moved the high court for advance bail.
In Nair’s intervention application he has alleged that the beating by Bhagyalakshmi and her gang in the room should be considered as a mob attack.
“The group came to my room without permission. They pushed me away and went inside. Their purpose was theft. Someone was not wearing a mask. Mike was devastated. They have no right to take the law into their own hands. They could have approached the court if they wanted. He had no idea they were coming. The invitation is wrong,” said Vijay P Nair.
“When they beat me, I did nothing in return. They have no remorse. It is still possible to commit a similar crime. Giving bail to the accused will send the wrong message to the society,” Vijay P Nair argued.
Bail was postponed till pronouncement of the judgment. The court allowed Vijay P Nair’s plea to join the petition. The court did not allow the appeals of the other two to join the party.
Nair said that even the former High Court judge had supported Bhagya Lakshmi and that this was sending the wrong message and that custody of the accused was needed.
However, Bhagyalakshmi said that their intention was not to steal but to hand over things to the police. They also stated that the items taken were handed over to the police. “It simply came to our notice then. Sitting in the living room. He was not harmed,” they said.
The court repeatedly criticized the actions of the defendants. The court said “you would not have done such an act if you had faith in the law.”
