THRISSUR: BJP state president Kummanam Rajasekharan, after visiting the house of actor Kalabhavan Mani, said that a CBI investigation should be called for if necessary. “The culprits, no matter how rich or famous, should be brought to light,” he told mediapersons.
Meanwhile, the probe team including Crime Branch SP Unnirajan held a meeting with the Range IG in Thrissur. “We are yet to determine whether it is a case of murder or suicide,” Crime Branch SP Unnirajan had earlier told mediapersons. Four of the close friends of Mani - Arun, Vipin, Murugan and ‘Pattaru’ Vinu - are still in the custody of police. According to sources, they are currently being questioned at an undisclosed police station, where the cops are still verifying their statements.
