Kerala High Court rejects actor Dileep’s bail in sexual assault case

The Kerala High Court today rejected the bail petition filed by actor Dileep, who is in jail in the case of attack and abduction bid on a popular Malayalam actress. This is the second time the HC rejects his bail plea. Earlier, the Magistrate Court at Angamaly also denied him bail in connection with the case.

The prosecution, who opposed his bail plea, had submitted a sealed cover that contained evidences against the actor to the court. There are three witnesses to prove that Dileep had plotted a conspiracy and 213 evidences against him.

The HC observed that considering the possibilities that the accused might influence the witnesses, it rejects the bail application. The court did not consider Dileep’s contention that the case was a fabricated one to destroy his film career.

Dileep has spent almost 50 days in the Aluva Sub-Jail in connection with the case. He was arrested on July 10.

The actress was sexually abused and tried to abduct by the main accused, ‘Pulsar’ Suni and his accomplices in the night of February 17 this year in a running vehicle in Kochi. With the arrest of Dileep, it was revealed that the incident was part of a conspiracy.
