Kochi: The Crime Branch has completed quizzing actor Kavya Madhavan. The team left her residence, ‘Padmasarovaram’ in Aluva here at around 4.40 in the evening. The questioning started at 12 in the noon.
Kavya is a witness in the 2017 actress sexual assault case in which his husband actor Dileep is an accused. She was also probed over the murder conspiracy case related to the assault case.
The officers did not clarify if Kavya cooperated with the agency. They will decide on more action in the case after analysing the responses.
SP Mohanachandran and Dy SP Baiju Paulose were present to take Kavya's statement.
Paulose was the one who led the 2017 actress abduction case probe, while Mohanachandran is leading the case in which Dileep is an accused and out on bail after his former friend and director Balachandrakumar came out in the open against him, claiming Dileep said that he would eliminate police officials who had investigated the case.
Though the probe team had served a notice to her to appear before them, she contested that since she is only a witness in the 2017 case, it should take place at a place which she wishes.
Even though she agreed to present herself before the probe team at her house, it was shot down by the probe team last month.
But with time running out for the probe team to complete the probe and submit its final report in the case, the team on Monday decided to reach her house to take the statement and it started at 11.30 a.m.
The probe team had recovered a few audio clips that allegedly contain references to Kavya and also they will be finding out from her if she had any previous links with Pulsar Sunil, one of the prime accused in the case. The clip is of Suraj, the brother-in-law of Dileep.
