The team probing the actress assault case recorded the statement of actor-cum-singer Rimi Tomy as part of its inquiry into the recent U.S. trip taken by actor Dileep with a group of artists from the Malayalam film industry for a stage show.
The actor, now lodged at the Aluva sub jail in connection with the actress attack case, was under investigation for murky financial deals and land grabs. They questioned her about a recent foreign tour along with Dileep and other artistes from the movie industry. Since the trip was held soon after the sexual assault on the actor in Kochi, more artists are likely to be questioned. Now the new development is that his friend and anchor-singer Rimi Tomy was interrogated regarding her connection with the case. A police officer name Baiju Paulose called and enquired about some stage shows I'd done overseas. Rimi has also gone with Dileep's team for several stage shows overseas.
The forces have been chasing the mobile phone and they had recently interrogated actress Kavya Madhavan, Dileep's wife, to find leads into the suspicion that Suni deposited the mobile phone or the memory card at her Kakkanad boutique.
Rimi was asked about information regarding Dileep's USA programme in which she was also a member. Meanwhile, the SIT is collecting images and other details from past film shooting venues of Kavya Madhavan who had denied that she knew Pulsar Suni, the main accused in the case, earlier.
According to the sources close to Dileep's family, the police investigation team chose to interrogate Kavya at their residence, due to the same reason.
