Adjust Comment Print

The magistrate court granted police custody of the actor till 5 pm today, partly allowing a prosecution plea, when he was produced on expiry of the two-day custody granted on July 12, as per PTI reports. The court has sent him to judicial remand till 25th July.

The prosecution has said that there are enough proofs to support the charges against the actor.

It all began when a popular Malayalam actress was abducted on February 17 while she was on her way home after a shoot.

The actor's counsel argued that his client was made an accused in the case merely on statements given by the first accused "Pulsar" Suni, who is a habitual offender. The actress plucked up courage to immediately lodge a police complaint.

This move came even as police claimed that the phone used by the prime accused to take a video of assault of the actress reached Dileep through alawyer allegedly connected with "Pulsar" Suni.

Police had taken the 48-year-old actor, arrested on July 10, to various places in Kochi, Thrissur and Thodupuzha to carry out their investigation.

Lawyers from the prosecution team also told the media that at a time when the police was on the lookout for Dileep's driver, Appunni, who is absconding, giving Dileep bail would jeopardise the case. Dileep was arrested on Monday night, and on Tuesday he was remanded to 14 days judicial custody.

The police chose to arrest Dileep based on 19 pieces of evidence that they were able to gather in connection with the abduction of the young actress on 17 February when she was travelling from Thrissur to Kochi by road. More people from film industry will be quizzed under the case.
