No action against Dileep till Tuesday, HC postpones hearing of anticipatory bail plea

Kochi: The Kerala High Court here on Friday postponed the hearing of actor Dileep’s anticipatory bail plea. The actor who is named as an accused in the actress attack case moved the plea after Crime Branch registered a fresh case against him and five others for allegedly threatening investigation officers who were probing the sexual assault on the actress. After deferring the hearing of the plea, the court also asked the police not to take any action against Dileep till Tuesday.

At the same time, Dileep has moved another plea in the trial court. In the plea, he requested that visuals of the actress attack possessed by probe team official should be submitted before the court citing chances to misuse it.

The court also observed that director Balachandra Kumar’s statement should be examined in detail.

The crime branch registered a new case against Dileep following the revelations made by the director.
