Kochi: “Pulsar” Suni, the gangster allegedly involved in molesting a top Malayalam actor, is likely to surrender soon at a court here along with his absconding aide Vijesh.
Suni had twice given cops the slip. The high court has postponed his anticipatory bail plea to March.
The special investigation team received a “reliable” tip-off in this regard and posted police personnel in plainclothes near the courts. “Our effort is to nab them before they reach the court premises,” a senior officer of the SIT said.
The two are believed to have fled to Coimbatore after escaping from the cops on Saturday evening. Various teams have been asked to camp at Coimbatore and other places within the state based on the information elicited during the interrogation of Manikandan, his key accomplice arrested from a hide-out in Palakkad.
“We’ve tightened the screws and he is running from one hideout to another. He is fast running out of money and our combing network has been expanded,” he said.
While abducting the actor, Suni had told her he was carrying out a “quotation”, a crime conducted on behalf of someone else. “The focus is now on to find out the third party and whether he/she is from the cine industry,” the official said.
