KOCHI: In a twist to the cocaine haul case, it is alleged that actor Shine Tom Chacko was a victim of  a conspiracy by someone in the film industry who wanted to spoil the young actor’s film career.  It is learnt that Shine was trapped by another actor who is ‘worried’ about his sudden growth in the industry. Shine had signed around eight films in a short span of time. The ‘actor’ is said to have played a part in giving tip-off to the police through an influential person. 

S Binu, director of ‘Ithihasa’, said the film industry would go behind any actor who is responsible for the film’s success. “Ithihasa has opened a wonderful career for Shine, who later signed eight more films in a row. He is a great actor and a nice person. We don’t believe that he used cocaine,” he said.

On the allegations levelled by the Shine’s father, City Police Commissioner K G James said it was just an emotional reaction of a father who wants to protect his son. “Every father will protect his son on such issues. So, we can’t respond to such allegations. We had gathered proof on the day of the raid itself to suggest that he had used cocaine. The the interrogation is on, and a clear picture will come out  in the coming days,” James said.

“The surprise success of Ithihasa has irked some of the ‘new generation’ actors. He neither used cocaine, nor possessed it,” said Jomon Varghese, lawyer of Blessy Silvester, Sneha Babu and Tincy Babu, the women who are accused in the case.  

Meanwhile, the five accused, were sent to police custody until February 10.
