Mumbai: In a lightning quick turn of events, disgraced Malayalam actor Dileep is all set to be produced at the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court in Angamaly on Friday in relation to his bail plea.
With his 48-hour custody attaining closure, the actor was produced at the court at 11 AM.
The actor stands accused of conspiring and getting the Malayalam actress allegedly molested in a bid to blackmail. Dileep is all set to become second accused in the high-profile case, behind primary accused Pulsar Suni.
The police had earlier said that they would be recording statements of Dileep’s second wife Kavya Madhavan and her mother Shyamala, director Lal and MLA PT Thomas, before the investigation is wrapped up.
Apparently, the actress leaked Dileep's 'affair' with current wife Kavya Madhavan to his then wife Manju Warrier back in 2013.
The police claim that Dileep insisted on Pulsar Suni recording a video to prove that it was not fake or morphed and that the actress should be clearly identifiable with her ring. The offences registered against Dileep are 120 (B) conspiracy, 342 (wrongful confinement), 366 (kidnapping, abducting), 376 (D) gangrape, 411(dishonestly receiving stolen property), 506 (1) criminal intimidation, 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence), 212 (harbouring offender), 34 of (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) and various sections under IT Act, 2008.
The police in its report claimed that they had collected witness statements as well as material objects to prove that Dileep had conspired with Pulsar Suni, the main accused in the case, from March 26, 2013 at various locations in Kerala till the event occurred. Suni deviated from his depositions and informed the police that he had conspired with Dileep and planned to capture the videos of the actress and a fee was fixed for the same.
The duo first met at Abad Plaza hotel in Kochi in 2013 during the rehearsal of an event organised by AMMA. They met in room number 410 and decided to capture the video, which Dileep insisted should be original. During the rehearsal, Dileep shouted at the actress. In another instance, Dileep and Suni met at Thrissur during the shoot of Georgettan's Pooram, a movie acted by Dileep. They discussed the plot behind a caravan, the police said. The cops revealed that Dileep was arrested at Carnival Guest House at Athani at 6 p.m. on Monday.
