Benedict Anto, a Syro Malankara Catholic Church priest from Kanyakumari district is on the run after videos of him indulging in intimate acts with women emerged on social media.

It is believed that the videos were put on social media by a group of people who attacked him a few days earlier and took away his laptop.

Anto has been accused of being a sexual predator, who would send obscene messages and also kiss and touch women inappropriately. He would then force these women to keep quiet by threatening to release their intimate videos.

A lady Mini Ajitha has complained to the police saying that Anto had filed a false case against her son Austin Gino because he had dared to confront him for harassing his female friend, who is a medical student.

According to report by Organizer, he is associated with the Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) and close to its leader Seeman.
