KOCHI: With hardly any headway being made in the ongoing probe into the conspiracy angle behind the abduction and assault of a female actor here, the Special Investigation Team (SIT) will seek further custody of key accused Pulsar Suni and fellow accused in the case .

The move to subject Suni to further questioning came after the police remand of the accused, who were handed over to the SIT for questioning in the mobile phone case, ended on Sunday. Officers maintained the SIT will take a final decision in this regard at its meeting at Aluva on Monday.
The investigators on Sunday grilled Suni at an undisclosed location. Other than dropping hints about the involvement of a leading Mollywood actor in the case, Suni has not made any major disclosures which would have helped the sleuths to join the dots.  

In Sunday’s other developments in the case, the Infopark police took the four  fellow accused in the case -  Vishnu, Vipinlal, Mesthiri Sunil and Imran - to a shop at Broadway to gather evidence. Police had found the accused had bought the shoe used to smuggle in the phone into the Kakkanad District Jail from here.
The shoe had been prised open and was stitched again with the phone inside it.

The accused had managed to get the phone inside the jail in this way, said an officer with the Infopark police. According to the officers,  there is no need for further custody of the accused in the mobile phone case.
Meanwhile, Kakkanad JFCM court remanded Imran, hailing from Malappuram, who allegedly provided the mobile phone and SIM card to Suni, in judicial custody.
