Dharmajan summoned for statement in Shamna case
Reported By 30 Jun 2020
In connection with the Shamna Kasim blackmail case, alongside nabbing hair stylist Haris on Monday, Kochi police also summoned actor Dharmajan Bolgatty for his statement. Reportedly, the actor isn’t directly linked with the case but he was asked for a statement as his contact number was obtained from the phones of the accused. Dharmajan was asked to give a statement at the commissioner’s office, and we hear that two more Malayalam actors will be summoned regarding the same. The police said that hair stylist Haris had played the role of the intermediary in the marriage proposal, through which the accused approached Shamna’s family.
On Sunday, the Kochi City Police had registered two more cases based on complaints of two more girls, as more women victims come up with complaints in connection with the case. Reportedly, the gang had extorted money and gold from 18 girls, who work in the cinema and modelling fields, after blackmailing them. The probe team is expected to record Shamna’s statement on Monday after she reaches Kochi from Hyderabad, where she was on a film’s shoot. The evidence collection with the accused at the actor's residence at Maradu is also likely to be held post that, as per reports.
Today morning, Shamna’s mother also told the media that the family is satisfied with the direction in which the probe is moving, and that they are not concerned whether the other complainants would change their stand midway through the probe. She said that they would stay firm with their complaint, regardless of that.
