Actor Dileep, who is currently jailed in the Aluva subjail, met his wife Kavya Madhavan and daughter Meenkashi who paid him a visit. Kavya Madhavan and Meenakshi met him after 55 days of his arrest which kept many wondering why so late. However, the meeting seems to have given many others some courage to meet Dileep after his arrest. Many personalities from the Malayalam film industry visited Dileep in the jail and spoke for some time.
The first celebrity to meet Dileep in the jail was Kalabhavan Shajohn and followed by Harisree Ashokan, Renjith and Suresh Krishna, according to a leading portal. Malayalam top actor Jayaram too met Dileep in the jail and gifted him Onakkodi which Jayaram has been doing for many years now. After Kavya Madhavan and Meenakshi, it was actor-director Nadirshah who also paid a visit to Dileep in the jail.
Dileep, who has been jailed for 56 days now in the Malayalam actress assault case, will first ever time step out of the jail after the court granted him permission. The court granted permission to the actor to attend his father’s Remembrance Day which is on September 6th. According to a report in Manorama Online, the actor will be taken to their ancestral home in Aluva with heavy police protection to ensure there are no problems arising out of the situation.
Dileep was arrested by the Aluvva police officials on July 10th, 2017 in connection with the Malayalam actress assault case after they found ‘irrefutable’ evidence against the actor.
