Actress assault: Kerala HC denies bail to Dileep

Actress assault: Kerala HC denies bail to Dileep

And with reports about a PR company (or companies) being hired by Dileep's team to help defend him on social media being looked into by the police, any support for the actor on these channels would not go un-scrutinised. Dileep would now have to approach the Supreme Court to seek bail.

The court also said that the actor may use it to hamper the investigation using it.

Dileep was charged under Sections 120 (B), 342, 366,376 (D), 411, 506 (1), 201, 212 & 34 of the Indian Penal Code and sections 66 (E) & 67 (A) of the Information Technology Act. Through the judgment, the court said, "The case is unique, considering its seriousness, meticulous planning, cruel nature of execution and being a crime executed to wreak vengeance on a woman by engaging criminals, to sexually abuse her. Courts have to be circumspect in granting bail in such cases."Dileep's remand period would end tomorrow, and the actor would be produced before the Judicial first Class Magistrate Court.The actor was arrested on July ten last". Questioning the prosecution's story, Dileep's counsel had submitted that meeting of two persons can not be termed a conspiracy unless there is meeting of minds. The actor's counsel had submitted before the court that there was no evidence against him. The second option is he can wait some more time and return to the high court again for bail. The prosecution argued that the granting of bail would be disastrous to the ongoing investigation. If the charge is serious and investigations in the case are ongoing, then chances of receiving bail are very low.

Producers of three Malayalam films with Dileep playing the lead role, which are in different stages of production, will have to bear their losses.




Appearing for the actor, Senior Advocate K Ramakumar contended that there was not even an iota of evidence to connect his client with the incident or the conspiracy. The actor has been in Aluva jail for ten days now. The statement of Congress MLA PT Thomas, who was among the first to call the police after the assault of the actress took place in February, could be crucial.

Citing another reason for denial of the bail, the court noted that the mobile phone used to record the sexual assault and the memory card containing the videos have not been recovered so far.

What is clear, is that Dileep will not emerge from this scandal unscathed.
