Mumbai: The Oshiwara police Monday served notice to Binoy Kodiyeri — son of Kerala CPI (M) leader accused of raping a woman — to give his blood samples for a DNA test. The officials said that the accused, who was grilled for close to two hours Monday, refused to give his blood samples, citing ill health.

Binoy was grilled for nearly two hours Monday when he appeared for questioning as per the Dindoshi Session Court’s directives. The police is however tightlipped on what unfolded during the interrogation. The investigators sought Binoy’s blood samples for conducting a DNA test as per the court’s directives, but the same could not be collected as Binoy cited ill health.

“We have served notice to him for completion of the procedure and the sample collection will be completed soon,” said Shailesh Pasalwar, senior inspector, Oshiwara police station.

The officials said that though a specific day could not be decided upon, collection of Binoy’s blood samples will be carried out next week. Binoy has been directed to appear for questioning before the Oshiwara police every Monday between 10am and 1pm for a month.

This was Binoy’s second appearance for being questioned by the police. A 33-year-old woman filed a rape case against him on June 13, after she discovered that he was already married.

The woman, who is a native of Bihar, alleged that the accused exploited her for years and left her with their child. In her complaint, she revealed that they first met at a dance bar in Dubai in 2008. The complainant also submitted some pictorial evidence to the police to support her claims.

Binoy was granted conditional anticipatory bail in the case on a personal bond of Rs 25,000 on July 3.
