Actress Vanitha Vijayakumar, who has been evicted from her father Vijayakumar’s house in Ashtalakshmi Nagar, Aalapakkam after she refused to vacate it, alleged that she was assaulted by cops on Friday.
Addressing the media, after lodging a complaint with the joint commissioner of police, the actress said that she and her daughter were assaulted by cops who had forcibly entered her house on Friday. She said, “I have been staying in my late mother’s house and it’s in my possession. Recently, my father threatened to evict me from the house as he is giving it on a contract to another producer. On Monday, I filed a case in civil court against my father. On Wednesday, the Maduravoyal police lodged an FIR based on his complaint against me. On Friday, 15 cops entered my house, threw things around, and attacked the technicians there. A police inspector going by the name of George Millar slapped me and pushed me out of the house.”
“They pushed me down, hit me hard in the face and head. A lady police also assaulted my daughter who had rushed to help me. She even spit on her,” she alleged. She also said that a police complaint can’t be filed against her when there is a case pending before the court.
Vanitha, a mother of three children, also claimed that she has been living in the same house for years and it’s the same address that is mentioned in her Aadhaar card and other ID proofs. She said that eight of her associates were taken into custody on the day of the attack.
The actress, who is currently directing a film titled Daddy in the same house, alleged that it was Arun Vijay – her brother, and the husbands of both her sisters who are behind the plan of getting her evicted.
