Thiruvananthapuram: The main accused, Pulsar Suni, who was on the run, in the Kerala actress molestation case has surrendered on Friday. The key accused was arrested when he arrived at the ACJM court in Ernakulam to surrender.

The actress in her complaint said that on Friday night, her car was hit from the rear by a tempo traveller at Athani, between Aluva and Angamaly. The passengers in the van allegedly forcefully entered her car and took control of it before driving it to Kochi.
The actress’s driver is suspected to have followed her car in the vehicle used by the gang members.
