KOLLAM: The police Sunday arrested Victor (62), grandfather of Anila, a ten-year-old girl, who committed suicide after sexually assaulted at Kundara. For years, he had been working as a clerk for a noted criminal lawyer. The arrest was recorded at a time when the police were all set to subject the victim’s mother and the accused for polygraph and narcoanalysis tests.
The statement of her grandmother and sister turned crucial for the police. Victor’s wife told police that she had complained many times about the behavior of her husband. The investigating team was not able to confirm his role as he was under suspicion from the beginning itself.
