Kochi: Police investigation is on to nab the women involved in the blackmailing of actress Shmana Kasim. Police are searching for the woman who spoke to Shamna posing as the mother of the groom on behalf of the fraudsters.
Meanwhile, it is reported that the accused also contacted many other film stars for smuggling gold. It is learned that the police will interrogate other film stars also in connection with this.
IG Vijay Sakhare stated that Harris, one of the accused, contacted the film stars claiming to be Ashkar Ali. However, the stars refused to be a part of smuggling activities. It was then that another accused Rafi approached Shamna Kasim pretending to be a businessman with a wedding proposal.

Police have gathered evidence of the actress communicating with the accused, who deceived her claiming to be the groom, through WhatsApp.
