Kochi: Police is yet to trace the main accused ‘Pulsar Suni’ aka Sunil Kumar despite coming close to trapping him just hours after the shocking abduction and molestation of a prominent Mollywood actor. Suni had earlier worked as the actor’s driver and she had fired him from job when she knew about his criminal antecedents. That he was the main one who harassed the actor after getting into her car was known to the police at the very moment they took statement from the actor at the house of director Lal on Friday midnight.
“In this case, we knew the identity of perpetrators of the crime early. We immediately alerted the control room to start tracing the tower location of his mobile phone. He was found to be around Gandhi Nagar around 2.30 am. However, he learnt about the actor approaching the police when he started receiving calls from those working in cine industry. He switched off the mobile and escaped even as the police team reached location,” sources said. The cops soon recovered the tempo traveler used by the accused. The vehicle was found abandoned at the Tammanam-Pullepady stretch.
