Kochi, Feb 23: Pulsar Sunil, the key accused in the abduction and molestation case of a Kerala actress was arrested on Thursday, police said.
Kerala Police chief Loknath Behra while briefing media informed that Sunil and an accomplice had been taken into custody but did not give any more refused details.
The Malayalam actress, who was travelling on the night of February 17 from Thrissur to Kochi, was abducted from her car by a gang allegedly headed by Sunil.
After taking photos and videos, the men left the actress near the home of a film producer. Martin, the man who was driving the actress’s car, was the first to be arrested by the police.
The victim had informed the police in her complaint that Sunil committed the crime at the behest of others and he had been hired to kidnap her. Sunil reportedly warned the actress that If she resisted, he would have to use force.
Meanwhile, chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan broke his silence on the matter and vowed to ensure the arrest of all persons involved in the crime.
The CM had shrugged off a question on reports that the son of a top party politician may be involved in the case. The state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leadership had brought up the name of the son of a leading politician and the role of a CPI-M activist from Kannur in the kidnapping case.
