The Kerala Police issued a look out notice for popular Malayalam actor-producer Vijay Babu on April 28.

The police suspect that Babu has fled India.

Babu, according to the police, is on the run after a female colleague hailing from Kozhikode filed a complaint before the police in Ernakulam that she was raped and beaten up by him a few times at a flat in Kochi.

The complaint was registered on April 22.

Soon after the news surfaced, Babu appeared live on his social media handle on Wednesday, claiming that he was the “real victim” in this case, adding that he would take appropriate legal steps against the complainant, whom he also named.

The police apart from her complaint, have registered a second case against the actor for disclosing the name of the complainant during his Facebook Live.

She has also accused the actor of intoxicating her before the sexual abuse.

The case comes at a time when the 2017 actress abduction case in which accused actor Dileep has reached a climax.

Meanwhile reports have surfaced that the actor will be moving an anticipatory bail plea in the Kerala High Court later on Thursday.

“I am the victim in this case as I know how pained are my mother, my family, friends and well-wishers because of this baseless complaint. But I am not going to sit idle, I will fight it out and let it be a new beginning in such cases,” he said in Malayalam.
