Palakkad | Malayalam film actor Sreejith Ravi was arrested by Police Friday on a complaint that he exposed his private body parts to school students.

Ravi was taken into custody for questioning Thursday in Ottappalam police station on the basis of a complaint filed by the Principal of a private school in Pathirippala.

Girl students reportedly told school authorities that a person sitting in a car in the premises of the school talked to them indecently, took their photo on mobile photo, and exposed nudity.

They noted down the registration number of the car and handed over it to the Principal, who in turn informed the police.

Police registered a case as per POSCO Act that intends to prevent sexual violence against juvenile girls.

Meanwhile, Sreejith Ravi denied the charge against him. While admitting that the number is that of his car, no incident as alleged in the complaint did take place.
