Actor Vijayalakshmi should apologise publicly for trying to defame me: Seeman
On September 16, actor Vijayalakshmi withdrew her complaint at the Valasaravakkam Police Station in Chennai for the second time.
CHENNAI: Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) chief coordinator S Seeman said that Tamil actor Vijayalakshmi, who filed and withdrew her rape complaint against him, should apologise publicly for trying to defame him.
"I came willingly to investigate the case. I have explained the allegations levelled against me. The allegation has been levelled against me at the instigation of some people. They are doing this act because they can't accept my growth," he said.
He added, "They are associating with a woman to tarnish my name. I have been abused by these women for thirteen years. 'Eight times abortion' claimed by the actress is a joke. Those who work for the welfare of the society shouldn't do this. Vijayalakshmi should tender a public apology for trying to defame me."
Seeman with his wife appeared today for questioning at the Valasaravakkam police station after the police issued summons twice to him asking him to appear for an inquiry. Seeman was questioned for more than one-and-a-half hours in connection with the case. Only five people, including advocate Ruben Shankar, were allowed to accompany him for the questioning.
Seeman's supporters from his party gathered in large numbers outside the police station and created a commotion.
On September 16, actor Vijayalakshmi withdrew her complaint at the Valasaravakkam police station in Chennai for the second time.
She had lodged a fresh complaint against the NTK leader on August 28 alleging that he had cheated her after having a relationship and promising to marry her.
The actress after withdrawing her complaint said that it was her own decision and no one forced her. She further added that she needed to accept Seeman was a “very powerful person” in Tamil Nadu.
She also expressed her disappointment with the police and the ruling dispensation and explained the withdrawal of support from Veeralakshmi of Tamilar Munnetra Padai, who assisted her initially when she approached the Chennai Police Commissioner's office, three weeks ago.
