Malayalam superstar Dileep fails to get bail, to move HC


A trial court here on Saturday denied bail to Malayalam superstar Dileep, who was arrested in connection with the abduction and molestation of a popular actress.

Following denial of bail, Dileep will have to cool his heels in the Aluva sub jail till July 25, when his two weeks remand period ends.

However, he will be moving a bail plea in the Kerala High Court on Monday.

The bail application in the trial court was moved on Saturday late afternoon, after an hour-long argument with the prosecution strongly opposing bail on grounds that further investigation could be affected as Dileep is a very powerful and influential person.

Taking this into account, the court denied bail to the actor.

With the police not seeking further custody, the court sent him back to judicial custody.

A huge crowd had gathered outside the court premises on Saturday.

When the actor was being brought from the court to the van and hearing that his bail plea was denied, the crowd jeered and booed Dileep.

Counsel for Dileep, K. Ramkumar argued that the police was banking only on the statements of the prime accused. He also deposited in the court for inspection two mobile phones used by the actor.

Dileep was arrested on Monday night, and on Tuesday he was remanded to 14 days judicial custody .

On Wednesday and Thursday, the police took the superstar to all the places where the probe team believed the “conspiracy” behind the actress’ abduction was hatched.

The police is reported to have asked Dileep’s manager Appunny to turn up but his phones have been switched off.

In a related development, the Enforcement Department has also taken a look into the assets of the actor, after reports that he owns a huge portfolio of land assets.

The police had earlier arrested the prime accused Pulsar Suni and his accomplices a week after the incident in February.

The police decided to arrest Dileep based on 19 pieces of evidence that they were able to gather in connection with the abduction of the young actress on February 17 when she was travelling from Thrissur to Kochi by road.

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

I was in a drenched look for 45 days: Dileep


Dileep is from Palakollu in West Godavari, his debut film Hora Hori is releasing tomorrow. On the eve of the release he tells Telugu360.com that he is here to stay in the Telugu film industry after a tough training by director Teja. “I did my Btech in Hyderabad. Since schooling I was interested in acting and took part in dance performances. During college days I told my parents about my inclination to learn acting and they said I must finish B.Tech first. Having done that I joined Satyanand’s training school at Vizag and responded to the audition call of Hora Hori.

Teja gave three tasks, and when I did that he on the spot said I was selected, he is my guru. This is just not about my dream being fulfilled, it is more than anything. Doing a debut film with Teja garu and with such a big banner and producer Damu garu is my fortune. My only focus is to give my best, we don’t have any personal issues so I was prepared for the tough training. He has a reputation of being strict with his artistes and I was prepared because whatever he says is in my best interest. We shot at Agumbe which is famous for king cobras, 15 to 20 feet reptiles would slide beside us while we were shooting. One day after lunch..I was required to climb a fence and jump and run and just when I was about to do that we spotted a huge snake moving there. Everyone warned me but Teja sir said action and I did it.

For one week I couldn’t walk as in another scene I should escape from the heroine’s house. I should jump from a tall wall but because of the incessant rain I skid and fell on my heel and it got twisted..but I continued to run. By the evening my foot got swollen, I went to the doctor and he said take rest for 15 days but I went ahead with the pain. The pain stopped after one month after shoot. From morning 6 to evening 6 and at a stretch for 45 days I was drenched, you will see me in a wet look. It was a great experience, after working in Teja sir’s film…I am confident of doing any film comfortably.”…Sunita Yalavarthi
