Actor Dileep to File Bail Plea on Sept. 14: Lawyer

Kochi: Actor Dileep will not file bail plea in the Kerala High Court on Wednesday. His lawyer B. Raman Pillai informed that the bail plea will be filed on September 14.

The actor has been in jail for the last two months in connection with the case of sexual assault and abduction bid on a Malayalam actress. He has been suspected of the man behind the conspiracy.

This is the third time the actor approaches the Kerala High Court seeking bail in the case. The actor was arrested on July 10. On July 15, the Angamaly Judicial First Cass Magistrate Court had rejected his bail plea. Advocate K. Ramkumar first appeared for him in the High Court.

The case was later handed over to advocate B. Raman Pillai. The prosecution has made it clear that they will mention in the HC about the frequent visit of actors in jail.

In his bail petition, Dileep is likely to claim that since the vital part of the investigation is nearing completion, he is eligible for bail.

The actor will also point out that he has strictly followed the directions of the Angamaly Magistrate Court during the two-hour permission given by the court to perform the rituals of his father’s shraadham.

It may be recalled that the HC had denied him bail two times earlier.
