Dileep has been making headlines for controversial reasons. A week after getting anticipatory bail from the Kerala High Court, Dileep on Monday filed a petition to quash the FIR in the case and if that's not possible, then the case should be referred to the CBI. In his petition, Dileep said that there is no evidence against him in the case that was registered in the last week of December.
The actor also added that it arose because of the conspiracy between the investigating officer in the actress abduction case Byju Palulose and Balachandrakumar with the full knowledge of director-general of police B- Sandhya and Crime branch chief S. Sreejith, via Latestly.
In his petition, he calls himself a victim of the conspiracy and since there is no evidence against him, the FIR in the case should be quashed. ALSO READ:Malayalam Actor Dileep Anticipatory Bail Plea Hearing In Abduction Case Postponed To January 21YIN
The fresh revelation came in December last year and soon the Crime Branch police registered a fresh case and sought the custodial interrogation of the actor, his brother Anoop, brother-in-law Sooraj, aide Appu alias Krishnadas, and close friend Byju Chengamanad, but last month the court asked all of them to present themselves before the probe for three days, via IndiaTV News. The probe team questioned them for 33 hours and after a number of hearings, last week Dileep and his aides got bail.
All through the trial in the anticipatory bail plea, the prosecution was determined to get the actor and his aides in custody, which was strongly opposed by the actor's counsel.
For the uninitiated, a frontline South Indian actress had complained that she had been abducted and sexually assaulted in 2017 and certain scenes were filmed to blackmail her. After the main accused Sunil was arrested in the case, Dileep was accused and arrested by the police.
