Malayalam actor Dileep, who is the 11th accused in the abduction and sexual assault case of a popular actress, might file a fresh bail plea. According to a Mathrubhumi report, the Aluva police will submit a chargesheet against the actor in the first week of October.
October 16 will mark Dileep’s 90 days in jail, with the police reportedly preventing the actor from getting bail. Mathrubhumi further reports that in his fresh bail, Dileep will most likely point out that the investigation is at the final stage and the police too have finished recording statements from everyone.
In the past, the Kerala High Court have rejected Dileep’s bail plea twice. Back in July, days after he was arrested, Dileep moved the high court for bail after the Angamaly magisterial court refused to grant him relief and sent him to judicial custody till July 25.
Meanwhile, Pulsar Suni — the main accused in the case — has alleged that director/actor Nadirshah paid him Rs 25,000 on the instruction of Dileep. A Manorama Online report says that Nadirshah paid him the amount at a movie location in Thodupuzha to carry out the abduction. The Special Investigation Team set up to probe this case have not interrogated Nadirshah yet.
Suni earlier alleged that the money was given to him by Nadirshah’s manager on the sets of Kattapanayile Hrithik Roshan, Shah’s own film. The police had already gathered evidence using mobile tower location documents to prove that Suni was in fact at Thodupuzha at the time.
On another note, with Dileep’s case building up by the day, several people who have supported him, have been facing flak for the same. Actor/director Sreenivasan recently had black oil smeared outside his house after he spoke in Dileep’s favour. Similarly, former MP Sebastian Paul, the editor of southlive.in drew flak after he wrote an article in the actor’s support.
