Kannur car fire accident: Family suspect foul play in finding bottle from fully burnt portion of car

Police stored the bottle allegedly found from the car inside a container; the couple killed in the accident

Kannur: Family members of the couple killed in the car fire accident in Kannur last week suspect foul play in police finding a bottle with alleged liquid residues.

Prajith (35) and his wife Reesha (26) were killed in a fire accident on February 2. Viswanathan, father of Reesha, told media persons that police finding a bottle in a completely burnt portion of the car was suspicious. He said he couldn't understand why the bottle did not burn.

Police said the bottle was found beneath the front seat. But even the mat below the seat was fully burned and how did the bottle not? Besides, they did not recover the bottle on the first day. It was found the next day. The car was parked on the roadside, he said.

The family is worried if someone was conspiring to establish that the fire occurred due to the mistake of the family and not a technical error of the car.

The result of the police investigation will affect the insurance claim and the case against the car makers, if the family wants to file any.

Forensic officials say that the bottle has to be examined to ascertain what was inside it. The result from the Kannur Regional Forensic Lab is expected in a week. Viswanathan says there were only water bottles in the car. Police have two of these bottles from the backseat of the car.
