Malayalam Superstar Dileep Fails To Get Bail, To Move High Court

A single-bench of the court deferred hearing of the plea accepting the prosecution's demand.

It would also adversely affect the ongoing probe into the conspiracy behind the sensational case, the prosecution said.

The actor will appeal to the High Court next. The police is also probing others related to or acquainted with Dileep to understand the full extent of the conspiracy.

The police is reported to have asked Dileep's manager Appunny to turn up but his phones have been switched off.

Noting the campaign being launched on social media hailing the actor, Special prosecutor A Sureshan added that these campaigns will set a wrong example if the release was secured.

The actor moved the high court for bail after an Angamaly magisterial court refused to grant him the relief and sent him to judicial custody till July 25.

Following Dileep's arrest, there has been a polarisation of opinions regarding the actor.

The custody of the two, till March 5, was granted after they were remanded in nine days judicial custody by the Aluva First class Judicial Magistrate court. Dileep was arrested on July 10 over his alleged links with the prime accused in the case, Sunilkumar aka "Pulsar" Suni. Suni and his accomplices were arrested a week after the incident. Right now, Dileep is in custody and every day a new story has been emerging about Dileep and the Malayalam industry at large.

The police made a decision to arrest Dileep based on 19 pieces of evidence that they were able to gather in connection with the abduction of the young actress on February 17 when she was traveling from Thrissur to Kochi by road.

Now, the actress has come forward expressing willingness to record her statement.
