No bail for Dileep

A court in Angamaly near Kochi rejected the bail plea of Malayalam film actor Dileep, arrested in connection with the abduction and sexual assault of a South Indian film actress in February this year.

This is the second time Dileep’s bail plea has been rejected by the Angamaly magistrate court.

Earlier, the Kerala High Court had also rejected his bail plea twice.

Dileep has been languishing in the Aluva sub-jail after being arrested in the case on July 10.

In his bail plea, Dileep had submitted that he has completed 60 days in judicial custody and hence, is entitled to a statutory bail.

The prosecution opposed his bail plea citing that the investigation into the case was still not completed. The prosecution also argued that if he is granted bail, that will adversely affect the probe.

There was sufficient material to implicate the accused in the case, it had said.
