p-g-manu

KOCHI: P G Manu, former government pleader in the Kerala High Court, accused of sexually abusing a woman who approached him for legal advice, has surrendered before the police. He surrendered before the DySP office in Puthenkurish early Wednesday morning. He surrendered after the high court and Supreme Court rejected his anticipatory bail plea.

The Supreme Court had directed him to surrender within ten days. The court had the other day directed that after surrendering, the lawyer should be produced before the magistrate and the bail application should be considered on the same day itself. The police have not been able to question P G Manu so far. The lawyer is likely to be produced in the court after this.

The case against him is that he sexually abused the woman who approached him for legal advice. The complainant approached him in last October regarding a case that took place in 2018. The complaint is that the woman was threatened many times and abused her at his office in Kadavanthra and at her house. A case was registered against the lawyer under many charges including IT Act for taking private pictures of the complainant without permission and sending lewd messages to her phone.

However, Manu's argument is that the behavior alleged by the complainant did not happen from his side and the case is part of a deliberate move by his opponents in the field of work. A case was registered against Manu on the complaint received by Rural SP. Manu had resigned from his post after the case was registered.
