Troubled times for Malayalam actor Dileep doesn’t seem to end as the Kerala High Court has denied bail in the alleged abduction and molestation of a popular actress. Refusing the bail, the court had then reserved the judgment after hearing the bail application and the arguments from both sides.
It was on July 20 that the actor’s bail plea had come up before the high court after the trial court refused him bail. Dileep was in a 14-day judicial custody which is ending on Tuesday, July 25.
According to the reports published by a news agency, the prosecution argued that Dileep being a high profile celebrity with a lot of influence could play spoilsport if given bail. They had presented 19 pieces of evidence, including scientific ones, before the court to nail Dileep.
A.V. George, Superintendent of Police and one of the key officials behind the probe said they would not have arrested the actor without evidence.
The police had earlier arrested the prime accused Pulsar Suni and his accomplices a week after the incident. Dileep’s manager Appunny and actor-turned-director Nadir Shah were also questioned along with Dileep in June. Appunny is on the run. He has moved an anticipatory bail which would come up for the hearing later in the week.
Last week, the police probe team voiced confidence that it has enough evidence against Dileep.
