Police in Hot Pursuit of Appunni

Kochi: The police have got information about actor Dileep’s  Manager Appunni, who is hiding at Nilambur, say reports. He was reportedly spotted near Nadukani Churam (ghat) at Nilambur. Appunni had gone absconding though he was summoned for interrogation in connection with the case of assault and abduction bid on a Malayalam actress.

The place where he is hiding is a popular film shooting location. The Malappuram police are closely monitoring the place following the information about Appunni. The special investigation team that probes the case is also camping at Nilambur.

Appunni aka Suni Raj’s vanishing act has impeded further investigation in the case as he is suspected of having involvement in the conspiracy. He is also the linking factor that connects Dileep with other culprits.
