In her complaint to the police, the woman, who is a private school teacher, alleged that Eldhose sexually abused her multiple times at 7 places. The evidence collection is being held based on this statement.
Police recovered Eldhose Kunnappillil’s T-Shirt from the woman’s house at Pettah in Thiruvananthapuram. It will be sent for scientific examination.
On Monday, the probe team carried out evidence collection at the complainant’s house, a guest house in Kovalam and a hotel in Thiruvananthapuram.
At the same time, the probe team will conduct evidence collection at the residence of the MLA in Perumbavoor. As per the complaint, the MLA had taken the complainant to his house and sexually assaulted her.
