Sanusha Regrets People’s Reluctance to Help Harassment Victims

Actress Sanusha has deeply regretted that people choose to remain mute spectators when someone is harassed. “It’s a regrettable trend, of course,” says Sanusha.

The actress, last spotted in Tamil screen a few months back as Sasikumar’s sister in Kodiveeran, faced sexual harassment during the rail journey from Kannur to Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday from a 40-year old co-passenger who was later identified as Anto Bose of Tamil Nadu. Sanusha, the Renigunta heroine, lodged a complaint with the Railway Police who arrested and detained Bose.

“When I raised an alarm about the sexual harassment, nobody including women came to help me. Thankfully, a couple of guys showed some understanding and accompanied me to the TTR’s compartment at 01:10 a.m. to lodge a complaint. After the TTR arrested the police, he alerted the police at the next Station (Trichur) who arrested the person when the train stopped there,” says the actress.

“It is indeed regrettable that people are generally not so sensitive about others’ suffering. How can they keep silent when they post their views on social networking about atrocities committed on various persons at other places? I lost the belief in society and its people after this incidence,” she concluded feeling bad about it.
