Two forest officials were assaulted allegedly by actor Kalabhavan Mani at Kannankuzhi, near Athirappilly, on Tuesday night.

Range officer U.G. Ramesan and beat forester P. Raveendran sustained injuries on the chest, hands, legs and eyes. They were admitted to the Chalakudy Taluk Hospital. Mr. Raveendran was later shifted to the Government Medical College Hospital, Mulankunnathukavu. His condition is serious.

The officials reportedly stopped a car in which Mani and his friends were travelling as part of a routine inspection. “Mani was at the wheel. Two other men and a woman were with him. The actor responded violently when he was asked to open the boot of the car... Mani and a person he addressed as doctor assaulted the foresters,” an official said.

The forest officials said that Mani was inebriated.

Jaya Gopinath, who was travelling with her husband Maliyekkal Gopinath and the actor, filed a complaint against the officials, complaining that the officials verbally abused her and misbehaved with her.

The police have registered cases against both Mani and the injured forest officials.

Mani and his friend were treated at a hospital at Chalakudy.

Mani must understand one thing that he may be super star before the one
watches of sub standard meaningless comic films,But he can never be a
star before judiciary .Please keep this in mind in next time when you
are raising hand against any body,Pls be humble and don't show the pomp
of power and influence.

It is unfortunate that celebrities or even VIPs who should set an example for others in obeying rules/adhering to laid down procedures by their conduct flout them with impunity in our country. One only hopes better sense prevails on them and they consider that all are equal before law.
