No sign of Anupama, her mother and father getting out of jail anytime soon; police ready to file charge sheet


KOLLAM: The police will soon submit a charge sheet in the case of the kidnapping of the six-year-old girl in Oyur. There are indications that the charge sheet in the controversial case will be submitted to the court within a few days. A high-level meeting was held in this regard yesterday. Evidence including CCTV footage of the accused going with the child in the car, laptop and mobile phone will be submitted as part of the charge sheet. Along with this, there will also be the test results of scientific evidence. The case is that the child was kidnapped and kept in custody for ransom. The case has been registered under sections that ensure life imprisonment. The charge sheet is under the sections of wrongful confinement, wounding, conspiracy and destruction of evidence.

The accused are KR Padmakumar (51), wife MR Anithakumari (39) and daughter P Anupama (21) of Chatthannur Mampallikkam Kavitharaj. They are now in judicial custody. Although it has been two months since they were arrested, the bail application has not been filed yet. With the police filing a charge sheet within 90 days, they will remain in jail until the trial.

According to the police, the child was abducted and kept in custody in order to settle the huge financial liability incurred by Padmakumar and his family. The child was found abandoned the day after the abduction. Although they had to listen to a lot of blame, the police arrested the accused within days. The main witness in the case was the girl's brother.
