Thiruvananthapuram: Administrative Reforms Commission chairman VS Achuthanandan said that complaints of sexual harassment against CPM MLA PK Sasi will be examined and necessary action will be taken accordingly.

"It will have to be seen whether the facts mentioned in the complaint conform to the facts said in the media. After that, strict action will be taken. Since it is a woman-related issue, a detailed perusal is needed,” he said to media.

Meanwhile, Health Minister KK Shailaja said after the investigation is over, she will respond to the matter.  

BJP State president PS Sreedharan Pillai has demanded prosecution of those who hide the complaint.
