Kochi: The police have seized the memory card in connection with the case of abduction and molestation of a young actress of Malayalam cinema. The memory card, which purportedly contained the recorded sleazy visuals of the actress at the time of the abduction, was seized from the absconding lawyer Pratheesh Chacko’s junior. It was seized when lawyer Raju Joseph was summoned for interrogation.
Meanwhile, the police informed that there were no visuals in the memory card, which is the main evidence in the case. Officials said it will be sent for scientific examination to find out if it was used to record the visuals. Earlier, the main accused in the case, ‘Pulsar’ Suni, had told the police that he had handed over the memory card and the phone to lawyer Pratheesh Chacko.
Raju Joseph was questioned at the Aluva Police Club on Sunday to know the whereabouts of Pratheesh Chacko. Earlier, the High Court had ordered Chacko to appear before the investigative officials for interrogation.
Dileep to move High Court
Actor Dileep, whose bail plea was rejected by a Magistrate Court at Angamaly on Saturday, is likely to approach the High Court today. There are moves to approach the HC for bail instead of submitting a bail plea to the District Sessions Court.
According to reports, Dileep has got the legal advice to obtain bail before the arrest of his Manager Appunni, who is still absconding. Appunni is suspected to have tried to hand over the money for ‘quotation’ to Suni on behalf of Dileep.
Meanwhile, the police have informed that they will oppose the bail petition of Dileep in the High Court.
