image A day after her husband Anand Rajan was arrested for allegedly assaulting her father Vijayakumar, former actress Vanitha approached DGP Letika Saran on Wednesday, saying the said case had been foisted on her husband, and filed a new counter-complaint against her father Vijayakumar, mother Manjula and half-brother Arun.

According to Vanitha’s disclosure to the media on Wednesday, the dispute began when Vanitha and her husband Anand Rajan came to pick up their nine-year-old son Vijay Sri Hari from his grandfather Vijayakumar’s house on November 7 after the Deepavali holidays.

"However, my father was in an intoxicated condition and did not want to let my son go. He abused me and started pushing me around. When my husband tried to intervene, Arun assaulted my husband and me. We approached the police immediately after the incident. After lodging the complaint, some police personnel escorted me back to my father’s house so that I could take my son," she said.

A few days after this incident, Vijayakumar lodged a complaint on November 20, alleging that Vanitha’s husband Anand Rajan had pushed him (Vijayakumar), resulting in a fracture in the wrist during a scuffle on November 7. Based on this complaint, the Chennai suburban police arrested Anand Rajan on Tuesday and remanded him in judicial custody.

"The police arrested my husband on Tuesday, but there was no action on my complaint dated November 7," Vanitha said, adding that the Chennai police is handling the case in favour of her half-brother and father Vijayakumar. However, the police said a case had been registered against Vijayakumar, Manjula and Arun for wrongful restraint and voluntarily causing hurt. Meanwhile, Vijayakumar and his family have decided to move the court for anticipatory bail, fearing arrest in the case. Anand Rajan has also filed a petition seeking bail.
