A drug addict – identified as Syju – is the “main culprit” in the case filed over the October 31 car accident in Kerala that killed two models, police said on Wednesday.
Both models – 25-year-old Miss South India Ansi Kabeer and 26-year-old former Miss Kerala Anjana Shajan – died on the spot, while one of her friends, who was in the front seat, died six days later. The driver of the speeding car, also a drunk friend, is the only survivor.
Syju, according to the police, was with her two friends at the same hotel party as the models.
At the party, Syju approached one of them with “bad intentions to abuse the models,” the police said. Syju offered to organize the overnight stay of the models in the hotel.
After the women and their friends left the hotel that night, Syju began to follow her car.
Upon seeing this, the driver of the car began to accelerate the car, according to police.
“It wasn’t easy,” said Arjun, Anjana Shajan’s brother, adding, “Having lost my sister and then seeing evidence destroyed. But now various details come to light. I trust the police investigation so far. “
“According to police reports, the incident occurred because of the chase, and the persecution was initiated by Syju. So why did hotel owner Roy panic and destroy the footage? Strict measures should be taken against him too… ”he told NDTV.
While one of the models’ family members is seeking an investigation by the CBI into the case, the police are demanding an extension of the suspect’s custody.
Syju is on trial today as the three-day extension of his police custody comes to an end.
