Actress Assault Case: Nadirshah Evades Call for Interrogation

Kochi: Actor-director Nadirshah has dodged the call of police for appearing before them for interrogation in connection with the case of sexual assault and abduction bid on a Malayalam actress.

According to police, the information he had given earlier during the initial interrogation was wrong. So he was asked to appear again for quizzing to bring clarity in his revelations.

Meanwhile, a few online news portals reported that Nadirshah has sought treatment in a private hospital here citing chest pain to evade from the interrogation by the police. There are reports that Nadirshah has sought legal advice in matters, including seeking anticipatory bail from a senior advocate of High Court.

He was admitted to the hospital by yesterday noon. On Wednesday, actor Dileep, who is in jail in connection with the case, attended his father’s shraadham (a ritual for ancestors) at his house. The actor was given permission on condition that he should return to jail within two hours.

The ceremony was held at his house from 7am to 11am. He had submitted a petition in the Angamaly Court in this regard.

The court had extended the remand period of Dileep till September 16. It may be recalled that Dileep was arrested on July 10 in connection with the case of conspiracy behind the recording of sleazy visuals of the actress by abducting her in Kochi in February this year.
