The FIR  registered on the basis of the statement of Anish, a relative of Kevin,  also  said that the accused had taken out Kevin from the car in which he was kidnapped to Chaliakkara, near Thenmala.   The FIR said that Kevin,   who  overpowered a  person who sat on  top of him,  ran and jumped into the river resulting in his  drowning.
