Aluva: The news reports against actor Dileep, who has been arrested in connection with the attack and sexual abuse of actress, are not tantamount to the violation of human rights, said Human Rights Commission Chairman P. Mohandas here today.
Addressing the press persons at Aluva Palace, he said that the evidence provided by the police can be taken at its own face value.
“Circumstantial evidences are considered to be crucial in conspiracy cases. This particular case is getting more media attention since the accused is a popular actor,” Mohandas said, and added that former Ministers P.J. Joseph and P.K. Kunhalikutty also faced similar kind of accusations while at office.
The Chairman refuted the contention that media reports would influence the court.
Meanwhile, according to latest reports, actor-director Nadirsha will be interrogated again in this case.
Abduction bid on another actress: One held
The Ernakulam Central Police today arrested a man in connection with the kidnap attempt incident of an actress in 2011. The arrested man has been identified as Ebin, hailing from Kothamangalam. It’s said that a five-member gang is behind the abduction attempt.
‘Pulsar’ Suni, the main accused in the case of attack and molestation of an actress in February this year, is also the main accused in the abduction attempt of this actress, who is the wife of a prominent Malayalam film producer.
Ebin was the cleaner of the vehicle, which was used to kidnap the actress. A case had been registered in a complaint lodged by producer Johny Sagarika.
According to the complaint, the actress was abducted during the shooting for the film “Orkut Oru Ormakkoottu”from Ernakulam railway station. Though they had planned to kidnap another actress, by mistake, they kidnapped the producer’s actress-wife.
When the vehicle began to travel in another route, the actress called up her husband and the film’s producer Johny Sagarika. Then the accused dropped the actress at Kumbalam and escaped.
Suni was the driver of Johny Sagarika during that period. A case was not taken in 2011 as the police had not got a written complaint, said V. Vimal, the SI of Central Station.
The police said steps will be taken to obtain the custody of Suni to take his statement in connection with this case.
