Kochi: Actor Dileep, who had been arrested and lodged at the Aluva sub-jail, was granted bail today by the Kerala High Court. The granting of bail today came as a relief to the actor whose bail pleas had been rejected multiple times earlier.
Dileep had been in jail in connection with the case of conspiracy in abduction and attack of a leading actress.
This was the third time that Dileep had moved the bail application before the High Court and the single bench Judge Justice Sunil Thomas granted conditional bail.
Earlier on four occasions – two each in the Trial Court and the High Court – his bail applications were rejected.
The actor had reportedly sought a conditional bail, and the Kerala HC granted him bail on strict conditions such as surrendering his passport at the court, and a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh. The court has also warned Dileep against influencing any of the witnesses or attempt to destroy any evidence.
