Court rejects Pulsar Suni’s plea seeking quashing of custody extension

Court rejects Pulsar Suni’s plea seeking quashing of custody extension

Kakkanad: A local court here on Friday rejected a plea filed by Pulsar Suni, key accused in the actress assault case, seeking the quashing of an earlier court order that extended his remand till July 18.

The Judicial First Class Magistrate Court, Kakkanad, here rejected Suni’s plea following a police report that stated that the accused had not been tortured while being in police custody.

Suni filed the case before the court claiming he was tortured by the police in connection with the investigation of the case.

Ernakulam judicial first class magistrate had remanded Suni in police custody for five days. Police had filed a plea stating that they needed to question him further. Police also wanted to take him to Coimbatore again, where he had stayed while on the run. Also, a fresh FIR was logged against him for using a mobile phone inside the prison.

The conspiracy angle in the actress abduction case surfaced ever since superstar Dileep, his close aide actor-turned-director Nadir Shah and manager Appunni were questioned for 13 hours last week over their alleged involvement. There is speculation that they might be asked to come in for another round of questioning. A few others from the film industry are also likely to be summoned.

Among those likely to be called include the present wife of Dileep - actress Kavya Madhavan, her mother.

The police probe team had reached the business place of Kavya last week but is yet to see her or her mother.

Trouble started for hugely popular actor Dileep last month, after his name surfaced in a jail inmate's letter on the case. The inmate shared the cell with prime accused in the kidnapping episode Pulsar Suni, who is believed to have shared details of the case with him.

During his marathon questioning, Dileep claimed he did not know Suni. But police has established that Suni was at the shooting location of Dileep's film in November at Thrissur. On Monday, the pictures of this were out on TV channels.

While Suni and his accomplices were arrested within a week of the kidnapping in February, police stumbled upon the conspiracy angle last week. Besides, pressure has mounted on the police after the Congress party sought a CBI probe into the case, while the BJP has also expressed displeasure at the ongoing probe.
