Thiruvananthapuram: The missing pieces of evidence in the case related to the death of young director Nayana Surya have been recovered from the Museum police station here.

It includes a bedsheet, pillow cover, and a few dresses. They were found in the evidence storage room at the station. These were reported missing after police collected them from the court following her death three years ago.

The Crime Branch is reprobing the death following allegations raised by her friends and family about the conclusions of the initial investigation. The CB searched the museum police station for evidence and found materials there.

Nayana Surya (28), former assistant of Lenin Rajendran, was found dead in her house in Thiruvananthapuram on February 24, 2019.

Nayana was an assistant to Lenin for more than 10 years. She directed the film ‘Pakshikalude Manam’ in the anthology titled Red Cross. She has also directed several ad films.

She was found dead a month after the death of Lenin. The initial conclusion was that she had killed herself due to depression as she was undergoing treatment. Police said she fainted due to sugar variation and later succumbed as she did not get help on time. However, the postmortem report accessed by her friends showed that the police did not probe into crucial information that points fingers at foul play.
