Her claims being violations listed under Section 4 of Tamil Nadu Prevention of Women Harassment Act of the Indian Penal Code, Section 294 (b) (obscene language) and Section 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint).
Moreover, reports also surfaced that Radha complained to the local police about James having unzipped in front of her. On the contrary, the composer denied the reports as he termed them to be false allegations made against him by vested interests.
But, James Vasanthan was subjected to police custody for 13 days at the Puzhal prison. Lately, reports have arrived and they clarify that the composer was victim to a power game which made him victim to a plot by his ill wishers.
James Vasanthan Speaks
As he is now out on bail, a day ago, James wrote an official statement as a thanksgiving gesture to his fans world over who stood by him. Here is the official letter which started off with the words – SATYAMEVA JAYATE.
Dear my online fans and friends and well-wishers, I find words insufficient to convey the gratitude that’s overflowing in my heart at this moment, looking at the trust you have had in me and for the way you have stood by me. I’m out on bail. How much she strived to stop the bail, was for everyone to see in the court, today. Since many of you have asked me the details of the whole issue, I deem it my duty to explain it to you, and thats why this blog.
Some dailies have given some super headlines just to make it more exciting, cos I happen to be a celebrity. Many of you have just brushed it aside and have expressed your faith in me. I have nothing to say about those who think otherwise.
A lady by name Mrs xxxxx xxxxxxxxxx (Age 64 – a rich wealthy person from Kerala) lives right behind our plot, where we have constructed our own house. In the year 2011, when we were about to begin construction, she asked us to sell the land to her and we said sorry, cos it was bought after much effort and hardship. She said, “I will make you sell it to me one day!” We thought she was joking. But, in these 2 years, we went through (inexplicable) hell because of her. Stopped our construction many times through various government bodies.
Before we moved into the house, she filed a false case saying we went and manhandled her and attempted to kill her, and the case is still running in a court. Since, its moving in a losing direction and her lies are going to be nailed, she has connived with a BIG MAN and foisted a serious case where I would be dealt with seriously. She was given the game-plan of what all charges to make so that it becomes Non-Bailable.
On 2nd August around 8 am, I went to drop my son at the main road. After dropping, I took a U-turn by when she comes from nowhere and almost crashes into my car, stops me from moving further, uses an abusive English word — 5, 6 times and speeds away. Before I could react, she was metres away, in front of me. I just left it at that, knowing this woman. But she went and gave a complaint to the local police station, saying that I stopped my car in front of hers, and unzipped my pants and exposed myself to her.
With a charge like this, I was booked under Woman Harrassment and with the fullest support of few Police Officers, the whole show was executed to near perfection. All the officers said themselves that they are helpless cos they have been instructed by the top man to do so. Once I sensed I’m getting arrested, I sent word through my P.R.O. asking all the press (TV & Print) to come to the court so that the news gets flashed all over just to make it big, so that eventually the truth comes out.
One of the many ridiculous things was, I was surrounded by 40 police officials, as if they were taking the most dreadful and sinister terrorist, from 3.30 to 12 midnight, until I reached the prison. These 40 men were working so sincerely surrounding me as if that were the last chance to save this country.
The BIG MAN has abused his office and of 40 others just to please one woman, just because she is also a malayali. Now, how will the people of this land trust this officer on who our C. M. has entrusted such responsibility?
I brought it to the attention of our C.M., so that she finds the truth and takes suitable action. Each time our CM. takes charge after winning the elections, the first thing she addresses is Law & Order and Police dept is one thing that she takes so much care of. That gives me all hope that she will diligently look into this matter and deliver justice to me. I have the fullest faith.
