After top Malayalam actor Dileep was arrested by the Aluva Club police on Monday, protests against the actor started across Kerala. The angry mob started burning Dileep’s effigy and raised slogans against him after he was arrested by the police. The crowd even vandalized and damaged a restaurant in Kozhikode which is owned by Dileep.
The angry group completely damaged the property inside the restaurant and even damaged the sign boards outside the hotel. People angry with Dileep smashed all the glass panes and destroyed the furniture at the restaurant.
Police personnel was posted at the restaurant anticipating such protests and even they could not stop the angry group from entering the restaurant. Earlier, youth organisations had taken out a march to the branch of Dhee Puttu, restaurant owned by Dileep.
Dileep is currently jailed at a sub jail in Aluva after the court sentenced him in connection with the Malayalam actress assault case. The police called Dileep on Monday for questioning and after a daylong session, the police decided to arrest Dileep based on evidences found in their investigation.
The prime accused in this Malayalam actress kidnap case, Pulsar Suni, had earlier said that big sharks will be arrested in this case. With the arrest of Dileep in just few days of him saying this, speculations are high that the many more big people might be arrested in connection with the case. Dileep’s Kavya Madhavan is also speculated to be one of those people who might be arrested by the police.
