Dileep to move HC again for bail on Sept 13

Kochi Sept 8: Actor Dileep, arrested on charges of plotting the abduction and sexual assault of a famous actress, will approach the High Court again on September 13 seeking bail.
The High Court had twice denied his bail pleas after considering the evidence against the actor produced by the prosecution in a sealed cover and the prosecution argument that the actor was a highly influential person capable of tampering with the evidence and influencing witnesses if he was granted bail.
It had dismissed Dileep's first bail petition on July 24 after finding that the probe into the case was progressing and the mobile phone, which the prosecution stated as a key evidence in the case, had not been recovered.
The police have claimed that the conspiracy to abduct and assault the actress in a moving car on February 17 as well as film the act was hatched by Dileep.
A magistrate court had last week extended the actor's judicial custody till September 16. He has been lodged in sub jail in Aluva ever since his arrest on July 10.
For the first time since his arrest, Dileep on Wednesday got a two hour break from jail to perform his father's annual remembrance rituals at his home in Aluva. The judicial magistrate court at Angamaly had last week granted permission to the actor to attend the annual ritual.
