Police in Chennai have finally booked the national president of RSS-affiliated student organisation, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), for harassing a 62-year-old widow. Dr Subbiah Shanmugam was accused of urinating and masturbating and throwing surgical masks after testing positive for coronavirus at the doorstep of the widow.
The woman had alleged that the ABVP national president began to harass her after she asked him to pay for the parking slot owned by her in the residential complex. The ABVP president was expected to pay Rs 1,500 every month towards using the parking slot, but has not made any payment since January.
The woman in her complaint said that Shanmugam would call her to inquire if she wanted chicken despite knowing well that she was a vegetarian. He would allegedly throw used surgical masks that he had bought for himself after testing positive for coronavirus. He would allegedly throw garbage and semen after masturbating at her doorstep. This prompted her to install a CCTV camera at her doorstep on 5 July.

Shanmugam was reportedly seen urinating at her doorstep on 10 July at 9.11 PM. The man is a professor and Head of the Department of Surgical Oncology at Kilpauk Medical College and Government Royapettah Hospital.
The widow had accused the Chennai Police of refusing to file an FIR against the ABVP President. However, the cops were forced to act on Saturday as the outrage against Shanmugam’s disgusting act gained momentum on social media.
