oyoor-

KOLLAM: Head of the investigation team Crime Branch DySP MM Jose said that an investigation will be conducted to find out whether Chathannoor resident Padmakumar and his family, who were arrested in connection with the abduction of a six-year-old girl from Pooyappally, had committed a similar crime earlier.

Currently, no other complaints have been received against the accused. However, previous information will also be inquired during the questioning. Route maps of various locations were obtained from Padmakumar's diary obtained at the time of his arrest. The last one among them was the route map from Pooyappally to Chathannoor from where the six-year-old girl was abducted.

The accused will be produced in court tomorrow based on the custody application filed by the investigation team. The investigation team has decided to ask for a week's custody. The interrogation will begin tomorrow. Evidence will be taken on Friday or Saturday.

Ahead of the interrogation, surveillance camera footage of the routes taken by the accused including after abducting the girl and dropping her off the next day has been collected. More footage has been obtained than what was found during the search for the accused. Letters were issued to the banks seeking details of loans and other transactions of the accused. The investigation team will also record the statement of Meenakshiamma who came against Anithakumari. Transactions with private individuals will also be investigated.
