Monson uncooperative to probe, phone calls to be examined: Police
Kochi: The investigating team expects that significant evidence will be received by checking over the Call Details Record (CDR) of Monson Mavunkal who cheated people pretending to be an antique seller.
Monson remains uncooperative with the investigating team and his bank account is empty. Police expect that by checking his phone records thoroughly, information regarding the money he hid and the cheats he committed will be received. Also, his social media accounts will be checked.
Thiruvananthapuram Range IG Sparjan Kumar, who is the head of the probe team, reached Kochi. The team reviewed the developments in the case and divided themselves into clusters to investigate each case. The cybercrime department also has been included in this team.
The detainment period of Monson finishes on Thursday but it is likely to be extended to fasten up the investigation as there is an HC order to submit the development report by October 26.
The bank accounts of his close friends and partners will be checked as it was informed that the amount has been transferred to the accounts of his partners at the request of Monson. Along with that, the accounts of the directors of his fraud companies will also be examined.
It has been found out that Monson had used the ‘Kalinga Kalyan Foundation’ for most of his deceptions. Malayalis staying in Bengaluru were the directors and promoters of this company. They will be questioned in the coming days.
The special investigation team has been widened by adding 10 more new officers making it 19 in the captainship of IG Sparjan Kumar.
