Swetha Menon names MP in grope scandal

Kochi, Nov 3 (TruthDive): Swetha Menon has named Kollam MP Peethambara Kurup and a person who can be recognized but whose name is not known as persons who groped her at a public function. Kollam police team visited her house here to record her statement.

They had close contacts with a member of CM personal staff. The opposition says that CM must resign and face probe.

Actor’s body AMMA has decided to support Swetha. The MP who is 73 years old and unmarried in defence says that he was actually protecting the actor from being groped.

She told the Collector who had invited her to the function about the groping. Collector denies of Swetha of telling him anything about the grope.
