As yet another Onam ends, the Malayalee has tasted everything except the folk songs of Kalabhavan Mani. He was one of the greatest versatile actors the Malayalam film industry has ever seen. Even after six months of his death, the investigating team is still trying to confirm whether it was a murder, suicide or natural death.
When the State police failed to find a link into the incident, the LDF government handed over the investigation to the CBI. Mani’s brother Ramakrishnan had also recommended a detailed inquiry to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. The Chief Minister had ordered the same in the early part of June this year, as Mani’s death was mysterious in nature.
Following that, the Chalakudy police submitted a request to the Chief Magistrate Court for a polygraph test and the Court has ordered the same for six persons – Mani’s manager Joby, driver Peter, helper Vipin, Anish, Murukan and Arun.
