Kochi: Kerala Police will inform the high court that the arrest of the accused in the POSCO case, including the owner of No 18 hotel, Roy Vayalat, is inevitable. It is reported that police have received crucial digital evidence, including CCTV footage.

The high court on Monday will again consider the anticipatory bail plea of Roy Vayalat, Saiju Thankachan and Anjali Reemadev. The probe team is likely to submit a detailed report on the case while the court considers the bail plea.

Meanwhile, Munambam police arrested two persons on a complaint that Saiju Thankachan was abducted. There are eight accused in the kidnapping case. According to the police, the kidnapping was planned by some local criminals who thought that Saiju was rich. They think the kidnapping is not related to the other cases. According to the complaint, Saiju was abducted by two men on the morning of Feb 16 from his house. They demanded Rs 1 lakh as ransom. Saiju somehow managed to escape from them.
