THRISSUR: The police did not take any action even after lodging a complaint for sexual abuse, said Olympian Mayookha Johnny. She levelled serious allegation against former women’s commission chief M C Josephine for trying to intervene to protect the accused. Mayookha convened a press meet along with the sexual abuse victim, her friend.

The accused identified as Chungath Johnson barged into her house and abused her sexually in 2016. No complaint was lodged then. The complaint was lodged after he threatened and pursued her after her marriage. However, Mayookha alleged that the police protected the accused.

Mayookha said the accused threatened her at a mall in Kochi in 2018. Soon after lodging a complaint with the police, the victim was attacked by a goon from Mumbai.
