Actor Dileep has been named the Eight accused in the charge sheet filed by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) in the Malayalam actress assault case. And interestingly, the report has also named many film personalities from Malayalam film industry as key witnesses which includes Dileep’s ex-wife Manju Warrier. The charge sheet, that was filed with the Angamaly Court, says that Dileep hatched the conspiracy on the victim after the Malayalam actress leaked about Dileep’s affair to his ex-wife Manju Warrier. The report also further states that the two, Dileep and the Malayalam actress, had a huge argument at a plush hotel in Kochi during a meeting regarding this and this further led to Dileep developing a grudge on the Malayalam actress.
It was earlier being said that Dileep may be named the primary accused in the case but in a surprise move, he is now named the Eight accused while Pulsar Suni has been named as the first accused. Pulsar Suni, along with his associates, had stopped the victim’s car on the night of February 17th this year and the Malayalam actress was molested by the men, before being let off at her house in Kochi.
Dileep was arrested on July 10th, 2017 after the investigating officials of the Malayalam actress assault case found irrefutable case against the actor. The police officials questioned Dileep for more than 10 hours of July 8th, 2017 and proceeded with the arrest after finding evidences. Dileep was granted bail by the Kerala high Court after being denied for four times.
