Dileep told the accused to assault and click nude photos of the actress

On the basis of strong evidence, Malayalam actor Dileep was sent to judicial custody. Police in their statement said that Dileep planned the conspiracy against the South Indian actress in 2013.

The actor developed hatred against the actress because he believed that the actress passed the information of his affair with current wife Kavya Madhavan to his then wife Manju Warrier. During investigation, police found that the actor gave 1.5 crore to the accused and asked for her nude photographs and assault recorded on video.

Dileep is currently locked in Aluva jail, about 25 kilometers from his hometown Kochi. Police claimed that Dileep had asked the prime accused 'Pulsar' Suni to record the assault video in such a way that it looked real and not seemed fake or morphed one.

Dileep claimed that he had never met Suni but police dismisses the actor’s claim and said they had evidence and eyewitness statement to prove that the actor had met him on November 13 last year at Thrissur Tennis Club during shooting of a Malayalam movie.

The conspiracy to kidnap and assault the actress was hatched at a hotel room in Ernakulam in 2013.

Police did not mention the exact date of Dileep's meeting with Suni at Room No 410 of Abad Plaza Hotel but said that the meeting took place some day between March 26 and April 7 in 2013.

During the meeting, Dileep asked the accused to shoot the assault video in such a way that he looked real and not fake.

Suni and Dileep again met at shooting locations including Ernakulam Swift Junction on November 8, 2016, Thrissur Kinattinkal Tennis Club on November 13 and Santhigiri College Thodupuzha on November 14, police said to hatch the conspiracy. Their mobile location proved their meeting.

Investigation said that Suni  went to Kavya’s store to hand over the video of the assault.

Dileep was sent to poilce custody for two days and he will be released on Friday.

The actor has been charged under several sections of the IPC, including 120(B) (conspiracy).

Dileep's counsel and noted lawyer K Ramkumar has claimed that his clint has been framed in the case.

Six persons, including 'Pulsar' Suni, have been arrested in the abduction and assault case of a famous south actress. She was allegedly molested inside her car for two hours by the accused.
