Syju and Roy have been under arrest now for alleged sexual harassment of a minor and her mother who attended a party at the hotel.
It was on November 1, 2021, that Ansy and three other friends returning from a party at Hotel No 18 met with an accident in which three of them lost their lives.

The cases have been registered at Panangad, Ernakulam South, Maradu, Fort Kochi, Infopark and Thrikkakara police stations, the commissioner said.
The investigation team also found pornographic videos from the phone which may attract a case under the IT Act.
The cops found that after the car accident, Syju attended rave parties in Goa and Hosur between November 4 and November 9 and saved the video recordings of the same.
Syju is a drug addict and the principal offender, police told the court. However, Syju's counsel said police had found that Abdul Rahman was drunk and his blood alcohol level was very high.

Over the years, the Vembanad lake has witnessed many searches for material evidence that was pivotal to a slew of crimes.
Following the accident, the hard disk was dumped in the lake as directed by hotel owner Roy J Vayalat. The search using sonar equipment is likely to continue on Wednesday.
The court recorded the submission and ordered that if the investigation officer requires the presence of the petitioner for interrogation, a notice under 41 A of CrPC should be issued against him.
As the lake has undercurrents, there is a possibility of dumped hard disk drifting to other places,” an officer of Fire and Rescue Service said.
Even in their latest raid on October 23 following a similar tip-off, the sleuths could not find any drugs.
