Dileep's manager appears for questioning in actress molestation case
Actor Dileep's manager Sunil Raj, better known as Appunni appeared before the Kerala police on Monday. After days of evading the police, Appunni, suspected to be the link between Dileep and prime accused in the actress molestation case, Pulsar Suni, Appunni appeared for questioning.
The Kerala High Court on Thursday had rejected the anticipatory bail petition of Appunni and had directed him to appear before the police. While he has not been named an accused in the case, the investigating officials believe that he may provide vital clues about missing pieces of evidence including the mobile phone used to shoot the actress.
Appunni arrived at the Aluva police station with another person who resembled him. Multiple notices issued by the Kerala police to Appunni went unanswered. It took the High Court's rejection of his petition and direction to appear before police for Appunni to finally appear.
Investigating officials have stated that he was hiding at a resort in North Goa. Officials have noted that the prime accused in the case, Pulsar Suni called Appunni from jail. While the intention was unclear, police officials are attempting to find out if Appunni was contacted by Suni to connect with Dileep.
