The latest development in the Dileep case is that anchor and actress Rimi Tomy has been questioned by the Kerala police. Rimi is said to be close to actor Dileep and his wife Kavya Madhavan.

It was Rimi Tomy’s financial dealings that were under the scanner.

The police asked whether she had any realty business dealings with Dileep and she reportedly denied any such dealings. In Kerala, Rimi told media that there was income tax filing irregularities but nothing illegal.

The police have denied that she was called in for questioning but stated that they collected details from her over the phone. The police were keen to know what and how she knew about the actress’ assault and whom she called immediately after hearing the news.

Rimi is also said to have accompanied Dileep on a show to the United States (US) and the police were keen to know about this.

A top Malayalam actress was kidnapped and sexually assaulted on February 17 and actor Dileep was arrested for being the main conspirator. While the Kerala police say they have enough evidence to nail him, they are trying to tie up all loose ends.
