Almost 12 days have passed and the police have not a clue as to where Preethi Varma is. Preeti Varma is a young new actress who has acted in films like Veeranna, Thirumagan&Anbu Thozhi. She has also got offers to act in Telugu and Kannada movies too. A week ago, she had travelled to Rajamundri to take part in the shooting of one of her films. Then on, there has been no news of her at all. Her parents Ramya and Bharath Kumar filed a complaint in K.K.Nagar Police Station alleging that she has been kidnapped by her manager Arun. Immediately, the police contacted Arun. He came down to Chennai at her request.
He told the police that Preethi Varma requested him to get rid of her parents. So he went along with Preeti up to the Mumbai Airport. After reach the airport, she disappeared suddenly. He filed a police complaint in Mumbai Airport station after this happened. He also said that Preethi is in love with Vijay - hence it could be a probability that Vijay has helped her escape. So the police got hold of Vijay. He said that he did indeed love Preethi but soon he realized that she did not reciprocate that love. At once, he decided to leave her and go.
He found out soon enough that she was in a relationship with Magendran, a jewller from Sowcarpet. So the police started searching for him. When he found out that he was a wanted man, he approached the police and made it clear to them that the information that they had was false. He did not know anything about Preethi or her whereabouts.
While all this was happening, a letter posted by Preethi Varma was found in the Chennai Head Post Office. In it, she had stated that she had run away on her own. The letter alleged that her mother forced her to sleep with many a industrialist and film personality. Her paresnts vehemently denied the allegations that she made against them. They said that they decided to cut all chords between them and their daughter. To do it cermonially, they "cremated" a garlanded picture of her. Her parents insist that she is in Chennai. The Chennai police have not officially said anything about it yet.
As far the real culprit is not found out yet and the police keep running around in circles, they have their Kannada Prasad case success story to keep themselves happy.
