Malayalam actress abduction case: Dileep ready for narco-analysis

Malayalam actor Dileep has lashed out at certain media outlets for falsely raking up his name and maligning him in the abduction and molestation case of a popular Malayalam actress in February. He denied being involved in any way in the sensational case and said he was ready to undertake narco-analysis, brain mapping and lie detector tests to prove his innocence.

"I wish to make it very clear that I am in no way involved in any case. For long, a section in the social media, certain online sites besides certain TV channels, have conspired against me and are determined to malign me. All this is being done to take away my fans. This is also happening at a time when my new films are to be released shortly. I am ready to take part in any tests, including narco analysis, brain mapping, to clear myself and not to make someone else an accused," Dileep stated in a Facebook post written in Malayalam, on Monday.

The abduction/molestation case grabbed limelight again last week after certain Malayalam TV channels aired an audio recording of a blackmailing call to Dileep’s close aide Nadirshah and Appunni, by a man linked with Pulsar Suni, the prime accused in the case. According to the audio, Suni had demanded a sum of Rs 1.5 crore to keep quiet on the actor’s alleged role in the case.

As per reports, Dileep had filed a police complaint regarding the alleged blackmail threat by Suni and his associates in April. However, police reportedly are yet to file a case based on the actor’s complaint.

On Sunday night, the Kochi police took Vishnu and Pathanamthitta, Suni’s alleged associates, into custody after the audio recording made headlines in Kerala. But, they have reportedly not been arrested based on Dileep’s complaint. A letter has also surfaced that threatens to expose Dileep’s alleged secrets, should he fail to pay the ransom amount to Suni, currently lodged in the Ernakulam District jail near Kochi.
