Two men on a bike fired shots at a beauty parlour owned by south Indian actress and model Leena Mariya Paul situated near the walkway at Panampilly Nagar in Kochi on Saturday, the police said.
The men, wearing full face helmets, came to the parlour in Panampilly Nagar around 3 pm, fired two shots and sped away, the police added.
There were a lot of customers inside the beauty parlour at the time of the incident but no one was hurt, they said.
“We suspect the weapon was an air pistol,” a police official told PTI.
The actress was in Thiruvananthapuram when the incident occurred.
Leena Mariya Paul has acted in Bollywood film ‘Madras Cafe’, Tamil flick ‘Biriyani’ and Malayalam films ‘Husbands in Goa’ and ‘Red Chillies’.
The actress was an accused in a bank fraud case and was associated with alleged con man Sukesh Chandrashekhar, currently in Tihar jail in a matter related to a bid to bribe the Election Commission, involving legislator TTV Dhinakaran.
