KOZHIKODE: A red corner notice will be issued to trace Rahul P Gopal, the main accused in Pantheerankavu domestic violence case. Crime branch ADGP has already filed an application to CBI in this regard. The application will be sent to Interpol on Thursday.

It is suspected that Rahul escaped to Germany after the incident came to light. Earlier, the police had issued a blue corner notice through Interpol to find Rahul, but to no avail. And now, the officials are best prepared to bring back the accused to Kerala through this new move. The report will be delivered to the Interpol headquarters in France within two days. A red corner notice will be issued against the accused only after the state home department gets a detailed response from the foreign country.

Earlier, the complainant's family had alleged Rahul's Germany escape. Even Rajesh, Rahul’s close friend testified to this and admitted about his friend leaving for Germany. The special branch had reported that he had gone to a foreign country via Bengaluru. Senior civil police officer Sarath Lal, who provided an opportunity and abetted Rahul to escape, has been suspended by the authorities. On the day of the incident, Sarath was on GD duty at Pantheerankavu station.

Sarath Lal informed Rahul about the move to charge attempted murder in the case. According to the investigation, it is clear that Sarath helped both Rahul and Rajesh to cross the checkpost by evading the police. The investigation team is examining the police officers' call records in detail. The woman and her family members had earlier alleged that the accused received help from Pantheerankavu police. A departmental inquiry has started against Sarath Lal.

Principal District Sessions Judge S Muralikrishna adjourned the hearing of the anticipatory bail pleas of Rahul’s mother Usha Kumari, and Rahul’s sister Karthika to the 27th of May.
