Kochi, July 19: Kerala Police on Wednesday voiced confidence it has enough evidence to il superstar Dileep in the alleged abduction and molestation of a popular actress in February this year. A.V. George, Superintendent of Police and one of the key officials behind the probe, refused to give out much about the probe, but said they would not have arrested the actor without evidence. He appeared confident that he has all the evidence against Dileep.
However, the actor’s mager Appunny, who is currently on the run, in his anticipatory bail plea filed on Wednesday said that police has no evidence against Dileep. He alleged that police is trying to put pressure on actor-turned-director dir Shah and himself to turn approver in the case.
Dileep is presently housed at the Angamaly sub-jail near his home town Aluva as a remand prisoner. On Thursday, a single bench of the Kerala High Court is to take up his bail application. Last week, the trial court denied bail to the actor. In a related development, revenue officials have found that the theatre complex owned by Dileep near here has been built on encroached land. They have started to initiate legal proceedings against the actor.
Giving the developments a political colour, state Congress president M.M. Hassan blamed Chief Minister Pirayi Vijayan over the actor usurping government land in two places. “The closeness the actor shared with Vijayan and the CPI-M is well known. It is the CPI-M which helped Dileep usurp government land. The revenue department is now looking into this,” Hassan told reporters in Kasargode. (IANS)
