Malayalam actress abduction case gets murkier after photos of Dileep and Pulsar Suni surface

Academy award winner Resul Pookutty just took to Twitter and lashed out at the Malayalam film industry for completely disowning actor Dileep because of alleged involvement in the infamous Malayalam actress assault case. In a series of tweets, he said that the industry’s attitude suggests that it was in a hurry to declare Dileep guilty. He went on to assert that a man is innocent until proven guilty.

“I’m quite surprised by my Malayalam Film Fraternity, the moment police arrested #Dileep everybody left him! Amma removed him from primary …membership. As per our judicial system, every accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty! Why was the hurry to declare him guilty?!There is a mob mentality the way everyone looked at #Dileep’s case.I hope Judiciary shows wisdom in looking at his case& look@ the fine print,” he added.

It goes without saying that these are some strong words and could create a buzz in the Malayalam film industry.

In case you were not aware, earlier this year, a noted Malayalam actress was abducted and assaulted while on her way to Kochi. This incident created a buzz in the industry and soon AMMA organised a protest meet to criticise what had happened. Dileep came under the radar when the main accused Pulsar Suni tried reaching out to him from prison.

On July 10, the cops called him for questioning and arrested him, thereafter. Post his arrest, he was sentenced to judicial custody. Following this, Dileep was expelled from AMMA as well as his own body FEOUK. Recently a district court extended his judicial and added to his woes.

Needless to say, this is quite a sensitive matter and it will be worth watching what happens next.

    Wow. You meant to say that the ACADEMY AWARD WINNER is trying to grab attention. Nonsense !!! The media and the society has been punishing someone who’s still under judicial trial. Please be understood that we have a judiciary and only the court has the right to JUDGE someone as guilty or innocent.

    The victim here is not Dileep. It is the actress. She was man enough to come out with what happened to her unlike what the attackers expected from her. As for Dileep, 80% of the people who have had some kind of dealings with him knows how vengeful, vain, manipulative and malicious he is and that he is more than capable of doing what he is accused of. Showing solidarity towards the actress would have been a lot more noble Pookutty.

    Supporting a person or not supporting is a right of an individual.This incident shows the fact that no one is above law.Since there are lot of facts or stories going around shedding doubt of the accused credibility it has to proven beyond doubt. There is an element of fear in many which is drowning truth.We cannot hide truth all the time.No one is invincible.If proven guilty punishment has to be enforced or otherwise really innocent the accused deserves an apology.If the accused is guity and gets scoot free it is very sad making public fools.

    Mr.pookutty did you ever speak about the courage exhibited by the victim and the way she came back to normal and fight for justice.pass on this message to every women how to face the society without any guilt if they are victimized by the prevailing social attrocities that can make her week.motivate them pass on this nice message to the society.let law do the work don’t advice the media or the investigation team what to do and about the Indian law .I think they are professional s in their field.let the defence prove dileeps innocence.until then maintain a dignified silence and try not to create sympathy for the dileeps Condi tion rather sympathize for the victim and support her in all her endeavour.this is what is expected of an every responsible individual and the respect you can give for the award in return.think twice before you speak

    Do not deliver blind comments about pookutty’s statement here.
    Pookutty trying to say that it cruel to declare someone guilty before the court does so. He is not trying to defend Dilip. At least use common sense.
    Let the police come up with strong evidence to nab Dilip
    We are not sure if Dilip is the real mastermind (if something exixts like that!)
    Wait and watch.
    One question remains”police still look for strong evidence against Dilip and if they had 17 strong evidence against him, the judicial custody would not have extended again
    One thing is sure.
    If police submit the case file with just these evidences,Dileep will come out as” cleaned”
    Anything can happen in a society where criminals are potrayed as innocents and innocents are potrayed as criminals
    There is a direct link among politicians, film , entertainment ,media, and underworld criminals
    This is applicable to every part of the world and our large society is controlled by those few but poweful people

    Way to go Mr.Resul!!…You had the backbone to say the truth unlike malayalm fil industry ppl…So true,until and unless he is indeed proven guilty by the court,who are we to crucify him on some vague assumption …suni had done such abduction etc of many more actresses in the past,in this case,it was taking advantage of the opportunity by Dileep’s rivals… ppl already hated dileep after his divorce from Manju and it became double fold, when he married kavya…and in between that the animosity between bhavna and dileep was like the icing on the cake…wat else do dileep’s enemies need 2 trap him hard !…Best script for the opportunist culprit .

    Malyalees have that trait,to act like a sadist, to crucify and punish ppl for wrong reasons…only support,applaud during good times, during bad times they show their true color..and disappear!

    In our country the rich play dirty games in the lives of women. Dilip was caught pants down and admitted animosity towards the actress. It’s a rare case and Dilip doesn’t deserve any sympathy . Resul pookutty is needlessly disturbed

    Now you should understand Dileep done many criminal attempt. Then why you trying to help him. Very poor man.

    Poor Resulkutty. Only way to get some publicity was to defend a man who lied. Or maybe it’s due to fear, being bought or misguided friendship. Either way, your stand sounds petulant and needlessly dramatic. It’ also makes clear what your attitude to women is. Back off Resul.

    Pookutty should understand that Dileep is powerful & huge in Kerala with fingers in a lot of pies . Now he’s bigger than Mohanlal & Mamooty who did support him in the beginning . This is India , big shots go on unpunished to flourish like the baytree , so if he’s arrested the police will definitely have substantial reason & evidence of his guilt . They will never ever arrest a powerful figure unless they are very sure of facts . No policeman says ,” Oh ! This case is unsolved , let’s randomly arrest Dileep for fun with no bail allowed !” The Malayalam Film Industry supported Dileep to the extent of sidelining the actress when everyone knew of Dileep’s personal animosity to the actress & it’s cause….how he monopolised business dealings with financing movies , distribution , real estate . High time the lot of them got some sense , hopefully this includes Resul Pookutty too.

    dileep is already guilty of cheating on his wife, going out of his way to make her life hell, trashing the reputation of the mother of his child, sexist statements on his wedding day of his mistress.. what makes you think he is innocent?he has the motive.the more he attacks his exwife manju warrier the guiltier he looks. and the fact that he was married to his relative before his elopement with manju warrier just makes him look like a sociopath. the courts will just prove or disprove primafacie guilt.

    Oh come on…no one said he is guilty yet. Why is Resul so hell bent on defending Dileep, perhaps friendship. But, I live in South and I know these stars can get away with everything and anything. For the first time, some one is in trial in the court.
