As we all know, yesterday, a court sentenced Dileep to 14 days in judicial custody in connection with the infamous Malayalam actress abduction case. Following this, some Malayalam stars attended an emergency meeting of AMMA and decided to expel Dileep from the organisation.
Shortly thereafter, megastar Mammootty spoke to the media about the case and officially announced that the ‘Love 24×7’ actor had indeed been removed from the organisation.
“Dileep has been removed from the primary membership of AMMA in view of his arrest. We will never favour a particular section of people in AMMA. The organization is for all,” he added.
He went on to add that AMMA was fully behind the victim and would ensure that she got justice.
“We are always with our sister. We have extended our support to her from the very beginning itself. We will stand by the victim,” said Mammootty.
For the uninitiated this February, a noted actress was kidnapped and assaulted while on her way to Kochi. As expected, this left many in the industry in a state of shock. A few days later, AMMA held a protest meet and condemned the incident.
At the event, Manju Warrier said that there was a conspiracy behind the case and urged AMMA to ensure that justice prevailed. Dileep came under the radar when the main accused tried contacting him from prison. On Monday, the cops grilled the star and arrested him thereafter.
It goes without saying that this a sensitive situation and it will be worth watching how things play out in the days to come.
