Kochi: Actor Dileep was sent to two days’ police custody by the Angamaly Judicial First Class Magistrate on Wednesday. It  reserved for orders the bail application filed by Dileep, who has been arrested for his role in the conspiracy behind the sexual assault on the actress.  She  was abducted and assaulted in a vehicle in Kochi on February 17.  

Though the police demanded Dileep’s custody for three days for further questioning and collection of evidence, the court allowed his custody only for two days. Dileep was produced before the court at 11 a.m. 

 

He was taken to the chamber of  the magistrate who allowed the police to take him. The custody period will end at 11 a.m. on Friday. 

Dileep's lawyer argued that the actor was  falsely implicated and that he was innocent. Dileep had already cooperated with the police, explained his innocence and he himself is a complainant.  

The police took Dileep to the Aluva police club and ADGP Sandhya questioned him. He  was first taken to Thodupuzha Shanthigiri College, but  owing to the strong protest by the crowd against him, he  was kept inside the police vehicle. Dileep was later taken to Cift Junction at Thoppumpadi and then to Abad Plaza for evidence collection. He was taken back to the Aluva police club at 7 p.m. 

 

Meanwhile, the government has appointed  A. Suresan as special public prosecutor in the case. He was the public prosecutor in the Soumya murder case.
