In a dramatic turn of events, Pulsar Sunil, the prime accused in the Malayalam actress abduction and molestation case, was arrested this afternoon. Known for having stolen a bike at the age of 16 years, it caught everyone’s attention today when he came to surrender in court, riding a Pulsar bike and he wore a helmet. Interestingly, the bike is owned by a Chennai resident, according to local TV reports. Police are probing details about his relationship with the owner of this bike.
Coming back to the dramatic moments when the main accused, Pulsar Sunil, reportedly jumped a wall to enter the court complex in Ernakulam, it has been reported that he was forcibly whisked out of the court room by the police. They didn’t allow him to surrender in court as the magistrate was having a lunch.
Security had been beefed up across all court premises to catch the main accused. ‘Shadow’ police had been deployed at various areas across most courts in the city. Still, the police were not able to catch him until he entered the court complex.
Lawyers in the premises objected to the use of force by Kerala police but the cops did not budge and they were seen forcibly pushing Pulsar Sunil into the police vehicle.
Several legal experts have raised questions about the manner in which Kerala police have taken Pulsar Sunil into custody. The police firmly say that when a courtroom is not presided over by a Judge, it is merely a room and not a court room. Therefore, the police assert that they have the legal authority to take Pulsar Sunil into custody.
