Web Desk(TVM)Updated: Tuesday Apr 19, 2022

Kochi :  The High Court on Tuesday turned down actor Dileep’s plea seeking to stall  investigations into the conspiracy case that accused him of plotting to kill the lead investigator in the actress assault case  The ruling came from Single Bench Justice Siyad Rahman. The court clarified the Crime Branch could proceed with their investigations.

Dileep is 8th accused in the Actress Assault Case of 2017.  Late last year, director Balachandra Kumar came out with revelation that Dileep had plotted to kill the lead investigator in that actress assault case. Following this, a case of murder conspiracy was registered, with Dileep as the prime accused. This is the case Dileep now pled for being quashed.

In today’s hearing, the prosecution strongly opposed  to quashing  investigations into the alleged murder conspiracy.  To make its point, the Crime Branch laid before the court several voice clips involving actor  Dileep, suggestive of conspiracy. 

Incidentally  investigations are in progress even as Dileep had much data from his mobile destroyed in a manner that makes their retrieval impossible. Meanwhile, Balachandra Kumar said, the ruling was in line with expectations and that it was court’s acknowledgement of evidences he had provided in the case.
