Mumbai: Dileep, who is the eleventh accused in the Malayalam actress molestation case, had recently received bail after four failed attempts. The actor had been incarcerated for 85 days before he had been released.
The actor has found support among peers, friends and his massive fan following through the case, which reflected in the box-office success of his latest release ‘Ramaleela’.
And if the latest rumours are to be believed, the Prime Miniter’s office has directed that the case must now be investigated by the Chief Secretary.
This development is allegedly after a FEFKA member, Saleem, approached the PM, asking for his intervention to get ‘justice’ o Dileep.
The high court has imposed many restrictions on Dileep, severely warning him against trying to influence witnesses or tampering evidence. Main accused Pulsar Suni is still in the custody of the state police.
The incident had occurred on February 17, when the actress was traveling to Kochi from her house in Thrissur. A gang had followed her in a tempo traveler and hit her vehicle from behind when it reached Athani near Nedumbassery.
The gang members then reportedly entered her car by force and assaulted her inside the moving vehicle over the next three hours. They are said to have clicked and recorded invasive and objectionable pictures of the actress. The Special Investigation Team had reported that Dileep was in possession of the explicit content.
Dileep is expected to resume work on his stalled film 'Kammara Sambhavam,' soon.
