Kerala High Court on Monday rejected the bail plea of Actor Dileep who was arrested on conspiracy charges in Malayalam actress molestation case.

Hearing the appeal made by the actor’s lawyer after he was earlier denied bail by the trial court, a single bench of Kerala HC quashed his appeal and asked for the authorities to carry on with the investigations.

The Malyalam superstar was arrested and remanded to 14 days of judicial custody for conspiring in the abduction and molestation of a popular actress in February this year.

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.

The police got hold of Dileep after they arrested the prime accused Pulsar Suni a week after the incident was reported this year.

The actress was abducted on February 17 when she was travelling from Thrissur to Kochi by road.

After almost 2 hours, she was dumped near the house of director-turned-actor Lal, who informed the police. She was reported to have been molested enroute. With agency inputs
