Kannur: Mumbai police are likely to issue a look out notice for Binoy Kodiyeri, accused in a sexual assault case filed by a Bihari woman. In the wake of the complaint, Binoy went absconding. Thus, police are planning to issue a look out notice. Reports said that Binoy might approach the Mumbai Sessions Court for anticipatory bail on Friday.
A rape and sexual abuse case was filed against Binoy at Oshiwara police by a Bihar native woman who was working in a dance bar in Dubai. In the complaint, she said Binoy cheated her after promising to marry and she has an eight-year-old son in this relation.

Based on the complaint, Oshiwara police in Mumbai registered a case against Binoy. Following that she gave statement to police and the recording of statement lasted for two hours.
The woman had submitted documents and evidences to prove their relationship. However, Binoy filed a counter petition with Kannur police stating that the documents she submitted were forged. Owing to this, Mumbai police had interrogated her.
