“In the interrogation many plans of the bulgurers were revealed” says one of a Police officer. “Murugan who robbed the money and jewels planned to invest it in Film producing. He met few people from the Telugu film industry. When they demanded large sum of money, Murugan thought of making Suresh as an actor”
“A film which was initially produced by them named as “Aathma” and it was dropped due to financial issues. After that they planned to make a film by titling it as “Mansa” and committed an actress who asked 50 lakhs as pay. They paid her 6 lakhs as advance and couldn’t able to pay more which resulted in the actress filing a case in court. The case is yet to be solved”
“After that Suresh and Murugan again planned to make another movie and met a Tamil actress in Hyderabad. When they met her, the actress said that she is busy and her dates were already locked. At that time, Murugan and Suresh showed her some of the jewels they robbed and told her that they own a jewellery shop. On seeing the jewels, the actress who got attracted to it, started maintaining a close relationship with the duo” said the Police officer according to the report of Nakkheeran.
“Murugan presented her costly jewels and she received it happily. Since then we started to maintain relationships with actresses from Tamil and Telugu industry” said Suresh to Police officers in the interrogation.
