After filing the plea, several CPM leaders had levelled harsh criticisms against the survivor. Following which, the chief minister came forward in support of the actress stating that the government is with the her and justice will be ensured.

The survivor’s petition states that there is a move to sabotage the case and that the court must intervene to ensure justice. She had alleged in her plea that the speedy filing of the charge sheet is part of some other’s intervention. The plea also stated that Dileep is a person of high political influence and that the unholy nexus between him and members of the ruling party is behind the move.

The actress submitted a three-page memorandum requesting several things such as not to stop further investigation, question the advocates involved in the case, appoint a special prosecutor among others. The chief minister assured that the government stands with the survivor in the case.
