In a startling development, Pulsar Suni, the prime accused in the Malayalam actor abduction case has claimed that the mysterious 'Madam' is Kavya Madhavan, actor Dileep's wife.
Dileep is currently in judicial custody as he stands accused of being the mastermind behind the assault and abduction of a prominent woman actor on February 17 this year.
Pulsar Suni, who has been refusing to divulge the identity of the 'Madam' who is believed to have given instructions to the accused and tried to procure bail for Suni, made the revelation to the media while he was being taken to the Ernakulam Additional Sessions Court.
"Kavya. I have said the name Kavya before. I am a thief, why are you listening to the confessions of a thief?" he asked the media when he was questioned about 'Madam'.
Though Pulsar Suni claims that he has revealed this information earlier, it is for the first time that the media is hearing of it. He'd earlier concealed the identity of the person and had also said that she did not have a big role to play in the crime. He did, however, say that 'Madam' used to give him money. However, he changed his tone today and claimed that Kavya was madam and he had revealed it before.
During the course of the investigation which has shaken up Kerala, the alleged involvement of a 'Madam' had repeatedly surfaced.
The accused had allegedly told police that they had been taking instructions from a 'Madam'.
When the police questioned advocate Pheney Balakrishnan who claimed that two persons had approached him for securing bail for Suni, the lawyer told the police that the two men had referred to one 'Madam'.
Although Pulsar Suni had earlier told reporters that he would soon divulge more on the identity of this 'Madam', the police had been unable to find any leads.
Though Dileep had initially claimed that he did not know Pulsar Suni, it was later proved by police that the two did know each other. According to reports, Kavya has told the police that Suni was her driver and in one occasion she had handed over money from Dileep to him.
The office of Lakshyah, Kavya Madhavan's online boutique, was raided by the police towards the end of June on the suspicion that the pendrive containing the visuals of the actor's assault had been handed over to someone at the office.
Pulsar Suni had mentioned visiting a shop in Kakkanad in a letter allegedly sent to Dileep. However, although the police conducted the raid at the Lakshyah office in Kakkanad, they were unable to recover the pendrive.
