Meanwhile, Excise is investigating whether a drug party was held at Hotel No. 18 in Kochi. The action was taken on the basis of a report submitted to the police excise on an AudiJ party that was attended by former Miss Kerala and others before the accident on the National Highway. The deputy commissioner of excise told Asianet News that a complaint had been lodged against the hotel in the past. Police are trying to identify all those who attended the party. Only when the footage is available will it become clear who participated.
The government told the high court that Saiju was not currently charged in connection with the car crash. However, the Kochi City Police Commissioner said that the search is on for the missing Saiju. The government had earlier said that Saiju Thankachan, who was following the car in which Ansi Kabir, Anjana Shah and his friends were traveling, had not been booked. Following this, the petition was settled. However, the Kochi City Police Commissioner said that an attempt was being made to question Saiju Thankachan and Abdul Rahman, the driver of the vehicle involved in the accident.
