Kochi: A leading Malayalam actress, who was kidnapped and raped in a moving car, two days ago in Kochi, has revealed that the people who attacked her tried to inject some sedatives, but failed. The actress also revealed that the criminals seemed to be acting on the orders of someone else went on to add that the main accused made it amply clear to her.
While the chief minister has said that he will ensure the perpetrators of the crime are apprehended and exemplary punishment is given to them, the perpetrators, a few of whom have been arrested have applied for bail. The way the criminals are behaving seems rather strange, many analysts believe.
In the meantime, there is an outpouring of support for the Malayalam actress. A large number of film personalities have come out in support of the actor. Mohanlal, Farhan Akhtar, Manju Warrier, Nivin Pauly, Prithviraj, Dulquer Salmaan, Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor besides many others have written on social media in her support. Mohanlal posted a note on Facebook demanding swift action against the attackers of the Malayalam actor who was molested on Friday night in Kochi.
On the other hand, the accused have filed bail application in courts. EC Poulose, counsel of prime accused Pulsar Suni, told the media in Kochi that the bail application will be moved on Tuesday. The prime accused and two others involved in the abduction reportedly sought anticipatory bail in the Kerala high court even as police continue to join the dots in the case. Police claim to have tracked all the accused involved in the case. Police apparently became over active following the personal interference by the chief minister of Kerala in the case. Inspector general of police, P Vijayan, said they have been able to track down all the accused. They have made three arrests and are keeping a close tab on the prime accused and three others.
Meanwhile local police officials claim that the actress told them that Pulsar Suni committed the crime at the behest of others. Suni, who has been a driver in the film industry for actors and others for some years, reportedly told her that he had been hired to kidnap her and if she resisted, he would have to use force.
