Kochi: Jose Thettayil MLA has filed a petition in the high court asking to dismiss the sexual assault case against him. He states that the sexual assault has never taken place and the police are harassing him unnecessarily. He further states that the case is politically motivated and it is created only for trapping him.

The police have registered a case against him for sexual assault. In Thettayil’s petition he says this FIR is not sustainable. He has got legal advice to the effect that the arrest could be prevented if the FIR is got cancelled. It is on the basis of this that he approached the High Court.
