The Hebbal police have intensified the probe into the murder of Kannada actress Hema Sri. They are searching for the couple’s car driver Satish, who is absconding after the murder.
“We have recorded farm house owner, Murali’s statement. Now, we are looking out for Satish as he was the last person to see the actress alive. His version would give us a better picture about the mysterious murder. We have also contacted his family members and they have informed us that he has neither gone home nor has he spoken to them over the phone after the incident. However, the search for him is on, and we would find him in a day or two,” a senior police officer said.
Meanwhile, the police are also probing into the angle of Hema Sri’s husband Surendra Babu plotting the murder well in advance.
“Investigations revealed that Babu had attended a party in the farm house a few months ago. We are trying to know whether he had planned the murder during that visit. However, Babu is also giving different statements and we are questioning him,” the officer added.
