Kochi: Actor Dileep’s manager Appunni, who appeared before the investigators in connection with the actress abduction and attack case on Monday, was let off after interrogation.

The investigators saidAppunni would be summoned again.

Appunni, who went absconding ever since the arrest of the Dileep, turned up before the probe officials at Aluva Police Club on Monday morning.

Earlier, dismissing his anticipatory bail plea, the Kerala High Court had directed Appunni to appear before the investigation team to record his statements.

Though police had served him a notice on July 11, he did not accept it. Accordingly, the police issued a notice again.

Police believe Appunni might provide crucial leads into the alleged conspiracy as he was very close to the actor and was present when Dileep contacted the main accused Pulsar Suni.
