Kerala High Court defers Anticipatory bail plea hearing of Actor Dileep

KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing on actor Dileep's anticipatory release plea in the actress abduction case until January 21. When the case came up for hearing this morning, the prosecution requested more time to complete the investigation due to new developments, therefore the judge adjourned the case until Friday.

This is the third time the court has postponed the case due to new developments, and like with the previous two times, the court has ordered that the actor not be arrested until then. In the ongoing trial in the case, the High Court authorised the prosecution to re-examine three witnesses and summon five new ones on Monday. All of these new developments came to light earlier this month as film director Balachandra Kumar made new claims about the issue.

The court hearings for Dileep were going well until Kumar appeared and spilled the beans, claiming that the actor had seen images of the actress who had been kidnapped being physically assaulted by her tormentors shortly after being freed on bail. It had only been seen by the trial court until now. Kumar made more confessions in front of the police and a magistrate.

The police investigation team opened a new case based on these revelations, and Dileep sought anticipatory bail, fearing he would be jailed.
