Achuthanandan said the Malayalee’s life has underwent a sea change with the passage of time. “While the changes were supposed to do good for the society, it did not happen,” he said. Congress leader V M Sudheeran said there were targeted attempts to mentally torture the actor and influence the law enforcers. 
“Unfortunately, they include people’s representatives who are supposed to stand with the victim,” he said.

Sudheeran said the investigation into the case was a test for the police to prove its trustworthiness. “Police investigation is progressing apparently fair.
