The actress, who was abducted and attacked in a moving car in Kochi back in February, has spoken up about the incident for the first time.

With new twists and controversies surrounding the case cropping up on a daily basis, the actress has now broken her silence on the matter via a press statement.

The actress expressed satisfaction in the police investigation, saying the probe is moving in the right direction. She also said rumours that she would try to settle the case outside the court have been proved wrong by the latest developments.

"I remained silent so far as the police had told me that if I speak up, it would have an adverse effect on the investigation. But I am putting out this statement now because there have been various reports and incorrect rumours regarding the case, especially on social media platforms," read the statement.

I am not trying to rescue or punish anyone.

“I am unaware of who is behind the attack and  I have not disclosed any names either to the media or through social media. I have no evidence against those whose names have been circulating in the media, I have no evidence to acquit them either.”

Speaking on a show in a private television channel on Monday, actor Dileep had said that the actress and Pulsar Suni, the prime accused, were close friends and had spent time together in Goa and several other shooting locations. The actor also said the incident is a lesson that one should be careful about who he/she befriends.

Reacting to the incident, the actress said that those who make baseless and objectionable statements against her in connection with the case should be ready to face the law.

"It came to my notice that an actor said Pulsar Suni and I were friends. It hurt me a lot. I am ready to take legal action against such statements if needed," the statement pointed out.

My conscience is clear.

"I don't fear anyone and I am ready to face any investigation," she stressed, possibly referring to actor Salim Kumar's Facebook post, saying the actress should be subjected to a lie detector test. Salim Kumar later apologised for the comment which drew a lot of flak.

The young actress, popular across South Indian industries, was kidnapped on February 17 while she was travelling from Thrissur to Kochi. The attackers later dumped near the house of actor-director Lal, who informed the police. The actress was allegedly molested during the abduction.
