Kochi: The Crime Branch officials are interrogating actor Kavya Madhavan at her residence ‘Padmasarovaram’ in Aluva. The investigation team had sent notice to Kavya to present before them for questioning at 11 am on Monday in connection with the actress assault case.
The interrogation is proceeding under a team led by DySP Biju Paulose and two SPs. No declarations have been made over how long the questioning may continue. Currently, Kavya's family, including her mother, is at her residence.
Though the Crime Branch had sent a notice earlier to question Kavya Madhavan at the same residence, they abandoned the plan citing she could not be interrogated at the house of an accused in the case. The investigation team also pointed out that there would be hinderances in setting up technical facilities for the questioning. The statement of Kavya have to be recorded in camera and the team informed that they had to show forensic evidence and use projectors while interrogation.
Although the witness can choose the venue of interrogation, the investigation team had asserted that she should cooperate for quizzing at a location where the facilities can be arranged.
