Kochi: The Kerala high court on Tuesday asked the Crime Branch to submit a report on the Balabhaskar death case within two days.

The court ordered this while considering the bail plea of Trivandrum airport gold smuggling case accused. The two accused were former associates of the late musician Balabhaskar.

Balabhaskar and his family met with an accident at Pallipuram near Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, in the early hours of September 25. While Balabhaskar and his wife, Lakshmi were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment, their 2-year-old daughter, Tejasvini, unfortunately, died on the spot. Balabhaskar died in hospital on October 2.

Trivandrum airport gold smuggling case accused Prakash Thampi and Vishnu Somasundaram were arrested days after Balabhaskar's death.  Balabhaskar's family also had alleged that the two may have been involved in the death of the violinist. Balabhaskar's father had alleged that Prakash and Vishnu had forced Balabhaskar to make Arjun his car driver.

It was reported that the Arjun was behind the wheel when the accident occurred on September 25. A few days ago, Balabhaskar’s driver Arjun had told Kerala Police that Balabhaskar himself drove the car on the day of the incident.

Later, Balabhaskar's wife Lakshmi had told police that it was indeed Arjun who had been driving while the accident occurred, and that Balabhaskar was seated in the back seat of the vehicle. Lakshmi further said that she and her daughter were sitting in the front seat with Arjun.

According to the latest reports, Arjun still maintains that Balabhaskar was driving the car from Thrissur to Thiruvananthapuram after they stopped over to drink juice in Kollam.

Arjun also told media that he knows Balabhaskar for the last 14 years. He also claimed that he is not a driver and was looking for a job in Thiruvananthapuram.
