Actress Poorna aka Shamna Kasim was recently in the news after her family had filed a police complaint alleging that a gang made attempts to extort money from her and her family, after approaching them with a marriage proposal for her.
Now, the ‘Muniyandi Vilangiyal Moondram Aandu’ actress has explained about the incident. “Thank you for the wonderful support my dear friends and well wishers during this ordeal. I just would like to clarify on few unreal reports in few media relating my case,” she said.
According to Poorna, “I do not know the culprit and gang who are part of this blackmailing saga hence I am pleading to all my media friends not to propagate such fake news linking me with the culprit.”
“My family had decided to lodge a complaint because we had been cheated with fake names, fake addresses, deceitful identities with a marriage proposal that completely misled us. This eventually led to blackmail for which we decided to approach the police for legal action. We never knew and still don’t know what their intentions were or are.
Currently, the Kerala police are doing an excellent job after my complaint and they have nabbed all the culprits. Therefor I am requesting all my media friends not to infringe on my family’s and my personal privacy rights until the investigation is over. I have complete faith and trust in our criminal justice system. I will definitely meet the media once the case is resolved,” she said.
The actress concluded by saying: “I am hoping that through my case, my fellow sisters out there will be a little vigilant in fighting off these fraudsters.”
