Actress attack case: Ganesh Kumar’s secretary blackmailed approver to backtrack, says police
Bekal: The approver in the controversial actress attack case has received threats from office secretary of MLA KB Ganesh Kumar, reported Bekal police. It is reported that Ganesh Kumar’s office secretary Pradeep Kumar blackmailed the approver to change his statement in the case. Explaining this, Bekal police has submitted a report to the first-class magistrate court at Hosdurg.
Bekal native Vipin Lal turned major approver in the case. On January 23, 2019, MLA KB Ganesh Kumar’s office secretary reached Bekal in search of Vipin. At first, he reached the house of Vipin’s relative at Thrikkanad. Failing to meet Vipin, he visited his uncle who works at a jewellery in Kanhangad. From here, Pradeep phoned his mother pretending to be the staff of Vipin’s lawyer.
During the conversation, he asked Vipin’s mother to advise Vipin to change his statement in the case. Following this, he continued to pressurize the approver’s family through letters. On continuous pressure to change the statement, Vipin filed a complaint with Bekal police on September 23.
The police identified Pradeep after recovering the CCTV visuals at the jewellery and documents submitted at a lodge here.
After realizing the involvement of Pradeep in the case, it is alleged that a huge conspiracy was hatched behind the case.
Bekal police have informed that the report was submitted before the court after identifying the person from the visuals.
Meanwhile, police need to clarify the matters relating to the letters.
