Kollam: The investigation in the case of abducting a six-year-old girl from Oyoor has been handed over to the Crime Branch even as the police team is set to move the court to get the custody of the accused to interrogate them again.

The development comes amid the abducted girl’s brother, who is an eyewitness, stating that a woman and three men were in the car in which the girl was abducted. However, the police say that the boy might have felt the same as he tried to use force to prevent the abduction.

The Crime Branch has started the investigation to remove the ambiguity in the statements of the accused as well. Padmakumar, a native of Chathannoor, who was arrested in the case, is lodged in Poojappura jail, while his wife Anitha Kumari and daughter Anupama are lodged in the Attakulangara women’s jail.

The decision of the Rural Crime Branch to take over the investigation has been reported to the court. The investigating officer also submitted an application for a production warrant to the court. A custody application will be filed on Tuesday for questioning the accused. The Crime Branch plans to interrogate the accused in detail to remove the ambiguity in their statements.
