Thiruvananthapuram: Crime Branch officials today interrogated actor and Rajyasabha member Suresh Gopi in connection with a probe into alleged fake registration of his luxury car in Puduchery to evade road tax.

Mathrubhumi News had uncovered that actors including Suresh Gopi, Amala Paul and Fahadh Faasil have forged documents to register their luxury cars in Puducherry to evade road tax in Kerala.

The High Court has stayed Suresh Gopi's arrest for a period of three weeks while considering his anticipatory bail plea on December 15.

Asking Suresh Gopi to cooperate with the investigators, the court directed him to appear before the probe team on Thursday. Suresh Gopi had filed an anticipatory bail plea on December 12 in the High Court.

The Crime Branch told the court that the signatures in the notary certificate produced by Suresh Gopi were forged. The signature of the Gazetted officer in the documents that show that the actor is a permanent resident of Puducherry, was found to be forged.

The Crime Branch had booked him on charges of forging documents to evade tax.
