Kochi: The Women in Cinema Collective (WCC), the newly formed association of women artists in Malayalm film industry, on Thursday said it would take legal action against further victimization of their actress-colleague who was abducted and allegedly molested in a moving car.
The collective said the case was not taken for discussion at the general body meeting of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists here on Thursday.
"WCC decided against raising it as the case is still sub judice and also it is not a case that has to be discussed only when raised by WCC. WCC is working in its own capacity to ensure all support to our colleague and helping her get legal counselling," it said in a statement.
The association said it would file a complaint to the State Women's Commission, requesting them to take immediate action against those who defamed the actress.
Stating that AMMA has pledged complete support to the attacked actress, WCC said "whatever work need to be done by AMMA should be their prerogative."
"As the person who has suffered terrible indignity is a member of AMMA we hope they will stand by her and ensure a fair trial," the statement said.
Earlier in the day, Geethu Mohandas , Remya Nambeeshan and Rima Kallingal, who are members of both AMMA and CWC, had attended AMMA's general body meeting.
After the meeting Innocent, president, AMMA, said the association did not discuss the case and it stood with both the victim and actor Dileep who was interrogated in connection with the case on Wednesday.
