Kochi: Director Balachandra Kumar has said that the ‘VIP’ who visited actor Dileep’s house directly called a minister and asked him to keep DGP B Sandhya out of the investigation into the case of torturing the actress. Balachandra Kumar also quoted the VIP as saying, “We will decide what to do in the case where the chargesheet has been filed.”
Balachandra Kumar may reveal who the VIP is in his secret statement before the magistrate today. He is the sixth accused in the FIR to be involved in a conspiracy by VIPs to assassinate investigating officers.
Meanwhile, Balachandra Kumar was not ready to let go of the suspense surrounding this VIP yesterday either. On the day that Balachandrakumar was said to have come to Dileep’s house for a movie discussion, the investigation team had shown Balachandrakumar the footage of those who had come to Dileep’s house in Aluva. There are indications that Balachandra Kumar has identified the VIP.
The investigation team concluded that it was the VIP who told the accused that he could kill the investigating officers. His business dealings, which he frequently visits abroad, are also shrouded in mystery. The first arrest in the conspiracy case is likely to be of a ‘VIP’.
Meanwhile, the probe team will question Sunil Kumar (Pulsar Suni), the first accused in the case, in jail in the wake of Balachandra Kumar’s revelations. Balachandra Kumar revealed that he saw Suni at Dileep’s house. According to a phone recording, Suni had seen Balachandra Kumar at Dileep’s house and hotel. Following this, it was decided to approach the trial court for permission to question Suni.
State Women’s Commission chairperson P Sathi Devi has demanded a detailed probe into the latest revelations in the attack on the actress. Satidevi also said that matters including the perversion of witnesses should be investigated.
