The FIR was registered by the crime branch on Saturday. They have been imposed of several charges including forcing unnatural sex. IPC 377 is imposed on Oommen Chandy and Venugopal is imposed of IPC 376.

Statement will be taken from Saritha again on the basis of her new complaint.

Saritha had earlier filed a complaint to Pinarayi Vijayan against Oommen Chandy and former ministers. A special team was formed and took the statement from Saritha.

However, former DGP Rajesh Dhavan and investigation officer Dinendra Kashyap took the stand that rape case cannot be imposed against many people on the basis of a single complaint and this interrupted the further proceedings.

The police sought judicial direction on the matter and they were informed that they can take action on special cases. Saritha filed two separate cases following this.

It has also been hinted that she will file a complaint against Aryadan Muhammed, A P Anil Kumar, Adoor Prakash, Aryadan Muhammed’s personal staff member Nazarulla, Congress leader N Subramaniam and Basheer Ali Thangal.
