The "Premam" piracy case is bringing out loopholes in the police investigation process, as repeated attempts to get hold of the main culprits have failed. While various raids conducted by Kerala police proved to be futile, the efficiency of investigation launched by the Anti Piracy Cell is also being questioned.
According to Manorama Online, police conducted as many as four raids to nab the culprits but all proved to be futile. Although the Anti Piracy Cell SP claimed that the probe is heading in the right direction and that the real culprits would be behind the bars soon, the only achievement of the team so far has been getting hold of a youth from Kollam, who had uploaded a pirated copy of "Premam" on the Internet. However, those who illegally accessed and copied the video are still absconding.
Though the investigation team conducted more raids in Kochi and Kollam after the arrest of the youth, they had to return empty-handed. The arrested youth revealed that several others have the pirated version of "Premam".
Meanwhile, the SP earlier said that the hard disc recovered by police will be send for forensic tests after which the actual culprits will be nabbed. However, the hard disc has not yet been send for forensic tests, according to reports.
Instances like repeated failed raids and the hard disc still not being send for forensic test are raising serious doubts on the functioning of the Anti Piracy Cell and Police.
