Kerala High Court grants bail to approver in actor attack case

The Kerala High Court on Wednesday granted bail to Vipin Lal, who is an approver in the actor attack case. The Court directed Vipin Lal to appear before the trial court, which is the Additional Special Sessions Court in Kochi as per bail conditions.

Earlier, the accused in the case actor Dileep filed a petition demanding Vipin Lal's examination not to be held until he is sent back to prison and alleged that his release from Viyyur Central Prison in 2018 was against norms. The court had dismissed the bail applications of accused Sunil Kumar and Manikandan in the case.

Notably, there had been allegations that the accused in the case were trying to threaten and influence Vipin Lal after he turned approver in the case. In November, aide and office secretary of Kerala MLA Ganesh Kumar, M Pradeep Kottathala was arrested by police who allegedly threatened Vipin Lal and his relatives asking him to back off from his statement.

An actor, who has worked in Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu movies, was allegedly abducted and molested inside her car by a group of men, who had forced their way into the vehicle on the night of February 17, 2017. She later escaped.
