Dileep arrest and Malayalam actress assault case: SIT team says final report will be ready in three weeks

An actresses’ body in Kerala was on Monday irked with the Association of Malayalam Movie Actors (AMMA) for its decision to revoke the suspension of superstar Dileep, accused of kidnapping an actress. “If you have decided to revoke the suspension… what has changed after he was suspended?” the Women in Cinema Collective (WCC) asked the AMMA, led by Malayalam superstar Mohanlal, in a Facebook post.

“Do you know that you have decided to take back someone who is alleged to have been involved in a rape and the trial is yet to finish… don’t you feel anything at all?” In its first annual general body meeting after Dileep’s arrest, the AMMA on Sunday revoked Dileep’s suspension on the grounds that it was done by a hurriedly-called executive meeting which was against the by-laws of the AMMA.

Dileep is accused of playing a role in the conspiracy to abduct the young actress in February 2017 when she was on her way to Kochi from her house. He spent 85 days in jail before securing bail. “The victim… is she also not a member of AMMA? Through this new decision, are you not insulting the victim again?

Being a democratic body, what’s the message you are trying to send across. This decision… is it not challenging the legal system of our land?” the WCC asked. The WCC was formed last year and includes many top actresses including Dileep’s former wife Manju Warrier and Parvathy.

In Sunday’s meeting, the leading actresses from WCC along with some male actors like Prithviraj were absent. The new members are yet to react to these statements by Women in Cinema Collective (WCC). The new President, Mohanlal, is yet to address these issues pertaining to Dileep and it is being expected that an announcement would be made in the coming weeks.

    So glad they are speaking up. This inhumane egoistic person needs to be punished, not applauded. It almost seems like the AMMA members who voted for him to join again need to experience something like what he did in their family to understand why he needs to be gone.
