Kochi: The Kerala police team probing the actress attack case has reportedly found a memory card that purportedly contained the obscene images and videos of the young woman.
The officers got the crucial memory card from advocate Raju Joseph, the junior of the absconding lawyer Pratheesh Chacko. The police quizzed advocate Raju Joseph at the Aluva police club Sunday.

However, it does not contain the images. The card will be send for scientific examination to find out if the images were erased.
The police wanted to interrogate Chacko after the prime accused, Pulsar Suni, deposed that he had handed over the phone used to record the harassment of the actress to the lawyer. It was Chacko who represented Suni in the initial stages of the case.
Meanwhile, reports said the mobile phone used by the goons to videotape their sexual assault on a Malayalam actress might have been flown out of the country. The police are desperately searching for the crucial piece of evidence to nail the accused including Dileep but the actor is believed to have sent it abroad with the help of a friend two weeks ago, sources said.
Dileep, who was arrested July 10 for plotting the attack on the actress, had apparently asked the goons he hired to videotape the attack. He wanted the thugs to hand over the clip before he paid them Rs 1.5 crore as promised, the police said.
The young woman was abducted and assaulted in a moving car in Kochi on February 17.
