HC reserves orders on Dileep’s bail plea

The Kerala High Court reserved its orders on a fresh bail plea filed by Malayalam actor Dileep arrested in connection with the alleged abduction and assault of a South Indian film actress in Kochi in February.

Justice Sunil Thomas concluded the hearing on the third bail application filed by the actor before the court.

Four bail pleas filed by Dileep were earlier rejected — twice each in a magistrate court at Angamaly and the high court.

Opposing the bail application, the prosecution reiterated their earlier contention that if bail was granted to Dileep, an influential figure, it would adversely affect the investigation.

However, the counsel for Dileep claimed that the actor was entitled to bail as no evidence was available against him.

Dileep has been lodged in the Aluva sub-jail ever since his arrest in the case on July 10.
