HC denies bail to Dileep; to stay in jail

The Kerala High Court on Tuesday refused to grant bail to actor Dileep, arrested on charges of plotting the abduction and sexual assault of a noted South Indian film actress in Kochi.

Justice Sunil Thomas denied bail after considering the evidences against the actor produced by the prosecution in a sealed cover.

Dismissing the bail petition, the second by the actor since his arrest on July 10 on the charge of conspiracy, the Judge ruled that the investigation in the case was still progressing and there appeared to be no substantial change of circumstance (since the previous bail plea).

The court also considered the prosecution argument that the actor was a highly influential person capable of tampering evidences and influencing witnesses if he was granted bail.

The court had dismissed Dileep’s first bail petition on July 24 after finding that the probe into the case was progressing and the mobile phone, which the prosecution stated as a key evidence in the case, had not been recovered.
