Suni’s writes to Dileep from jail

Amidst a flurry of conspiracy theories behind the abduction and sexual assault of a female film actor in Kochi, a letter purportedly written by Sunil Kumar Surendran, aka ‘Pulsur’ Suni, and addressing actor Dileep, has leaked out.

The letter, dated April 12 and carrying a seal of the district jail, Kakkanad, where Suni has been lodged, demands money from the actor besides a request to rescue five others arrested in the case. In his letter, Suni claimed that he was being frequented by people who were against the actor.

“You could have deputed a lawyer at least to inquire about my well-being,” the letter read. It further demanded that the “promised money” be handed over in a period of five months and that he had not divulged anything so far.

The letter quoted Suni as saying that he had to ensure that the five others arrested along with him were safe. Suni went on to say that he was sending the letter with great difficulty and through a third person, who had little knowledge about the case.

He further wanted the actor to contact him somehow in three days of receiving the letter.

When contacted, officials with the district jail said they had no knowledge of any such letter. ‘‘Suni had been supplied with several blank papers for writing down petitions and details of the case against him. Had he sent this letter through the formal route, we would have seen it and examined its contents. This must have gone out through a third party,’’ said Jaya Kumar, Superintendent, district jail.
