Malayalam actor Dileep has been arrested and sent to 14 days judicial custody in the Malayalam actress assault case. It is reported that the Kerala police have found 29 pieces of key evidence that apparently implicate him in this crime.
Malayala Manorama reports that the police found a close relative of Dileep gave Rs 2 lakh to Suni to allegedly commit the heinous crime. There has also been CCTV footage related to this found in Kavya Madhavan, Dileep’s wife’s boutique. Kerala police are reportedly filing rape and conspiracy charges also against Dileep.
This is one of the worst crimes committed against an actress in India where an actor allegedly hired men to commit the assault. The actress, who has assaulted, has only stated that the police are investigating and will find the culprits.
The police are also reportedly investigating actress Kavya Madhavan’s role in this crime. Dileep’s animosity towards the assaulted actress dates back to 2013. The actress is close friends with his ex-wife Manju Warrier and that’s one of the issues which allegedly irked him.
