She has blamed Hindu outfits for attacks on her. Speaking to Republic TV, she said that the man who attacked her on the Kozhikode beach is an active member of RSS and his nickname is Kuttan. Despite that, the police refuse to recognise him.
“Earlier, on December 18, an auto-rickshaw driver had deliberately hit me. Prior to that, some of the goons had hit me on the face. I have filed so many complaints regarding these attacks but the Kerala police always tries to protect the accused. Basic charges under 509 and 323 (bailable offences) are registered against them,” Ammini added.
The Kozhikode Police first maintained that the man who attacked her on Wednesday was unidentified. Later, they identified him as Mohandas who attacked her in an inebriated condition.
