Relief for Kavya; HC says no need to seek anticipatory bail

The Kerala High Court dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of actor Kavya Madhavan after the police gave an assurance that she will not be arrested in an abduction and sexual assault case in which her actor-husband Dileep was arrested in July this year.

Justice P. Ubaid also adjourned the anticipatory bail application of Malayalam actor Nadirshah, a close friend of Dileep, to October 4 for further consideration.

The court recorded the statement of the police that they have no intention to arrest Kavya.

Dileep was arrested for allegedly plotting the abduction and sexual assault of a Malayalam actress. Kavya had filed the anticipatory bail plea in the high court on September 16.

In her petition, Kavya had alleged that the officers in the probe team “made open threats of arraigning” her as an accused to “cover up lacunas in the unfounded allegations against her husband and intimidate” all persons associated with him.
