Actor Nadhirshah seeks anticipatory bail at Kerala HC

KOCHI Sept 8: Actor and film director Nadhirshah MS has sought anticipatory bail from the Kerala high court, contending that police is threatening to arrest him in actress attack case if he does not give a false statement.
 
While admitting that he is close to actor Dileep, Nadhirshah said in the pre-arrest bail plea that he has already divulged all that he knew to police. Though he was questioned in detail earlier and his statement was recorded, police could not find anything to implicate him, the petitioner contends.
 
"Now, the petitioner is facing threat and pressure to give false statements and it is also informed to the petitioner that if he would approach the court it is very easy for them to make him an accused though he has not made him an accused for the past two months," the bail plea filed through advocate S Rajeev said.
 
Further, it is alleged that police is not following the procedure prescribed in criminal procedure code and is arresting people without submitting any report before the concerned magistrate if the person being questioned is not amenable to their dictates.
