Chennai, July 25: A widow living alone in her apartment in Chennai city suburbs has filed a police complaint against ABVP national president Dr Subbiah Shanmugam, accusing him of harassment, including urinating and throwing used surgical masks at her doorstep.

Shockingly, no action has been taken so far by the police, even though the complaint against Dr Shanmugam, who is in government service, was filed on July 11 at the Adambakkam Police Station here by the widow’s relative Balaji Vijayaraghavan. 

Dr Shanmugam and the 62-year-old widow were living in the same apartment complex in Nanganallur and an argument broke between them over a parking slot. “He wanted to use our parking lot. We agreed but demanded a nominal charge for using it. He was outraged by our demand and even broke our signboard at the parking lot,” Vijayaraghavan wrote in his complaint.

He also alleged that Dr Shanmugam began harassing her by throwing “pieces of chicken” outside her apartment despite knowing she is a vegetarian. Vijayaraghavan also alleged in his two-page written complaint that the ABVP National President had urinated outside the woman’s apartment gate and had been throwing garbage and used masks at her gate.

The 62-year-old woman has been living alone in her apartment for the last year following her husband’s death. In his complaint, Vijayaraghavan also said the family was “concerned about her safety”, while asking police to take action against Dr Shanmugam, who he says, “has a bad track record in maintaining rapport with neighbours.”

CCTV footage corroborates with the allegations of urinating outside the residence of the widow. However, the ABVP claimed the incident as a “malicious and derogatory propaganda” by the Congress’ student wing of NSUI.

Mangaluru, Sept 24: Reports are doing rounds that sandalwood actress and Kannada television host Anushree has been summoned by the Mangaluru Central Crime Branch as part of an escalating probe into the state-wide drugs scandal.

If reports are to be believed, Mangaluru CCB today sent a notice to Anushree through Whatsapp to appear for interrogation. Further details regarding the date of investigation are awaited.

Reports also claimed that Anushree's summons are based on the investigation of Bollywood dancer and choreographer Kishore Shetty.

Kishore was arrested by the CCB Mangaluru on September 19 for allegedly possessing drugs. It was reported that Kishore Shetty consumed synthetic drugs and had been arrested by the CCB sleuths after they received information about the same. According to reports, Kishore has revealed that Anushree used to be a part of a few parties.

However, Anushree confirmed to a regional news channel that she has not received any notice from the Mangaluru CCB as of now. She also mentioned that she is deeply hurt and disheartened by such kind of news.

Anushree is one of the highest-paid anchors of Kannada television, reports suggest. She has been given a tough competition to her contemporaries in the showbiz world. In Kannada TV with more number of male anchors, Anushree has won the hearts of millions with her on-screen persona and style of hosting.
