Kerala actress abduction case: Dileep, Nadir Shaha quizzed for 13 hours


In Kerala actress abduction case, noted actor Dileep and director Nadir Shah were questioned by the police for over 13 hours.

Along with them, Dileep’s former manager Appuni, was also questioned for more than 12 hours on Wednesday.

The question answer session started at around 12.30 pm on Wednesday and they were allowed to go home only at 1 am on Thursday. Dileep is highly confident that the truth will be out soon.

"I am confident and hope that the truth will be out soon. I have fully cooperated with the police and will do so again in the coming days if I am asked to," Dileep said after coming out of the Aluva police club at around 1 am.

The investigation team, include ADGP B Sandhya, Ernakulam rural SP A V George and Perumbavoor circle inspector Baiju Poulose.

Talking to media before meeting the police, Dileep said that he has come to meet the investigation team in connection with his complaint of being blackmailed by main accused 'Pulsar' Suni.

"I am not interested in a trial by media. I will say what I have to say to the police and court directly. Nothing can be done if some people want to victimize me. Please don't twist the story. I had complained to the police regarding blackmail by Suni and am here to give my statement on this," Dileep said.

"We are probing all the angles, including the conspiracy part. We have called them for questioning to get more clarity," a senior police officer said.

All the three of them were questioned in separate rooms. Police will cross check their statements.

Official sources said that the three were quite co-operative. The Malayalam actress abduction and molestation case took a new turn when the police arrested two persons for blackmailing Dileep and Shah.

One of the two is Vishnu, who is alleged to have threatened Dileep and Shah to cough up Rs 1.50 crore or else he would "reveal" their role in the kidnap conspiracy. Vishnu told them there were others in the film industry who have offered him Rs 2 crore for naming Dileep in the case.
