Director and producer Tess Joseph of Indian cinema had revealed that Kerala MLA Mukesh, had behaved badly with her in a hotel when she was just 20 years old.
Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala police have said that it is not possible to file a legal case against actor-politician Mukesh, who is facing allegations made by a Metoo campaigner.
Kollam city police had approached the district government prosecutor, seeking his advice after Bollywood casting director Tess Joseph levelled attempt-to-molest charges against Mukesh, who had denied it outright.
Director and producer Tess Joseph of Indian cinema had revealed that Kerala MLA Mukesh had behaved badly with her in a hotel when she was just 20 years old. This incident happened 19 years ago. She wrote that she was one of the crew members of the Malayalam quiz show Kodeeswaran, hosted by Mukesh.
Tess worked as a technician then for the TV programme and Mukesh used to reportedly force her to shift her room next to his. She had allegedly complained to her head Derek O'Brien and he apparently solved this issue. Derek is the MP and Parliamentary leader (Rajya Sabha) of All India Trinamool Congress.
The main legal advice was that the complainant had not lodged any complaint with the police in Mumbai, where the incident is said to have happened. A case cannot be made out of mere Tweets, cops said. Moreover, Tess, in his subsequent Tweets, had requested against using her revelations for political mileage.
