Angamaly: The Magistrate Court here rejected the bail petition of actor Dileep in connection with the kidnap and molestation case of a young actress. Dileep will be in remand custody in Aluva Sub Jail till July 25.
The prosecution contended that the allegations he made against the actress on a television channel expose his mental state. But his lawyer Ramkumar strongly opposed it.
The prosecution pointed out that when the society strongly supported the actress in the case, Dileep had made derogatory remarks against her.
At a time he is in police custody, there are propagations through social media extending supports to him. So, what will be the state if he was given bail? the prosecution asked the court.
Meanwhile, the accused’s lawyer handed over Dileep’s two mobile phones to the court. He said the phones were handed over for scientific examination. The lawyer alleged that if the phones were given to the police, evidences would be destroyed.
Ramkumar contended that police are going ahead with the probe based on the statement of a criminal, ‘Pulsar’ Suni, against Dileep.
Meanwhile, the police conducted raid in the house of Dileep at Aluva. It is said that the raid was as part of a bid to retrieve the cellphone of the accused, which allegedly contains the visuals of sexual abuse of the actress.
