Crime Branch probe hits a roadblock in Kerala police driver assault case

The team was hoping to connect the missing dots and clear doubts using the CCTV visuals obtained from cameras installed at Kanakakunnu Palace and surrounding places.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Crime Branch special team probing the cases filed by ADGP Sudesh Kumar’s daughter and police driver has hit a roadblock. The team was hoping to connect the missing dots and clear doubts using the CCTV visuals obtained from cameras installed at Kanakakunnu Palace and surrounding places. However, to the team’s disappointment, the footage they got from the cameras were of poor quality, rendering even deciphering of the vehicle numbers from the plates impossible. Adding to their woes, no visuals were available of Engineers Hall and its front portion, where the ADGP’s daughter allegedly attacked the police man.

“The footage lacked clarity. If an incident happened, one can only identify from the visuals what colour shirt the culprit wore and which vehicle he was using. Beyond this, no other data can be obtained,” sources said.

The CCTV visuals were expected to provide clinching evidences for the probe team headed by anti-piracy cell S P Prashanthan Kani. It has been also reliably learnt that despite the Museum-Vellayambalam stretch being one of the busiest and happening part of the city, in between Museum Junction and Keltron’s West Gate, surprisingly there are no CCTV cameras installed.
