In a sensational news, Kerala High Court on Friday completed the hearing of the anticipatory bail of dubbing artist Bhagyalakshmi and her friends over attacking a YouTuber and put off the verdict. The high court interrogated if Bhagyalakshmi and friends resorted to attack as they lost faith in the law. The advocate representing the YouTuber Vijay P Nair, who was attacked, urged the court not to grant bail to the accused. In the meantime, Bhagyalakshmi and her friends argued that charges registered against them including attack and theft was not legally valid.
The accused said that they went to the place of Vijay to talk about the controversial video as per his request. They said the laptop, mobile phone and headset taken from the spot were handed over to police. The attorney of the accused also denied the allegation that his clients carried ink and velvet bean powder which causes extreme itchiness on contact. The complainant's advocate argued that the accused had trespassed into his client's place and granting bail to them would send the wrong message to the society.
To a query by the court that if the video of the attack was released as they did not have faith in law, the advocate said his client took an effort to bring change in the society. The court responded that those taking such efforts must be ready to bear the consequences.
