Malayalam superstar Mohanlal today wanted exemplary punishment to be handed over to those behind the attack on the young Malayalam actress at Kochi. “Exemplary punishment should be handed out to these criminals who are worse than animals so that it serves as a lesson to similar minded characters who I will not even term as humans,” he said in a facebook post. “It’s time we stop being candle holding and candle lighting sympathisers and ensure that the law of the land be strengthened in such ways that nobody even dares contemplating such acts leave alone commit it,” he said. “My heart goes out to her in this time of distress. May justice be served without delay,” he said.
The actress was allegedly harassed for two hours by a gang of men, who forced their way into her car before fleeing.
