Swetha Menon In State of Shock, Says She Didn’t Lie

Swetha Menon, the Indian model, actress, and TV anchor, was involved in an incident last Friday at Kollam which have led to accusations of lying.

Menon, (39), said “I am not a liar.. (I) am in a state of shock over the incidents that happened yesterday (Friday) and I am deeply hurt in the manner in which the Kollam district collector has refuted I spoke to him about what happened. I want justice because I have been picturised (sic) as a liar and I can’t take this,”

She added.”I will write to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on what has happened.” said Menon. Chandy told reporters he had not received any complaint and if she gives one, it would be taken up.

Swetha said let “visuals speak” after TV channels showed a lawmaker getting ” very close” to her during a boat race.

Menon added, ” I could have reacted instantly but since I am not interested in creating news, I did not,” said Menon while answering a reporter’s question whether the politician was Congress leader Peethamabara Kurup.

Kurup told reporters he has been in public life for several decades and that he was not such a character and would soon produce pictures to show that the accusations were false.

Congress leader Bindu Krishna said Kurup is known to be a very caring person and “what I am told is that there are more pictures and once that also comes out, it would be clear what has happened,”

Swetha Menon is reported to have told the Kollam district collector after the incident happened and so far no action has be taken.

So, it seems to be yet another instance of ” he said – she said.” However, this time maybe Swetha Menon’s version of events will be supported by the pictures.
