Lok Sabha member Innocent, president of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA), told reporters here that he has tried to get in touch with chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan over the incident.

"I was told by his secretary that he is en route to Delhi. I will speak to him later. I also spoke to the head of the police force Loknath Behra, who has assured me that the police are doing their job and all behind it would be arrested," said Innocent.

Leader of opposition Ramesh Chennithala, currently on a day-long protest at his home constituency near Alappuzha over the "sudden deterioration" of the law and order situation in the state, expressed shock over the incident.

"If this is the plight of a celebrity, what can one say about ordinary people. This is really shocking," said Chennithala, a former home minister.
