KOCHI: The police have arrested two men who were in the seven-man gang that abducted and allegedly raped a Malayalam actress in a car on Friday night. The two men were on the run after the actress lodged a complaint with the police.

They were picked up in Coimbatore on Sunday. 

The actress’ driver Martin was arrested on Saturday for allegedly having a hand in the whole episode.

The actress in Tamil and Malayalam cinema was allegedly abducted and raped in a moving car on Friday night. 

The episode unfolded dramatically on Saturday when it was revealed that a seven-member gang led by Sunil Kumar aka Pulsar Suni intercepted the actor’s car on National Highway 544 near Parambayam, Nedumbassery around 10 pm Friday night. 

She was on her way to Kochi after a film shoot in Thrissur when the incident took place. 

The gang followed the actor in a van, engineered a minor collision with her car and picked up an altercation with the car’s driver. In the melee, two of the gang members got into the actor’s luxury car. 

Sunilkumar reportedly molested while inside the car and shot her pictures and videos in compromising positions. The accused got off at Palarivattom within the city, and escaped in a van after dropping off the car driver at the same point.

The actor took shelter in the house of a director at Kakkanad, who in turn informed the police.

The rest of the four accused, including Suni, the mastermind behind the operation, are still at large.
