Dileep's bail hearing in the afternoon; Kavya approaches HC

Dileep's bail hearing in the afternoon; Kavya approaches HC

In her plea filed through her husband's lawyer Raman Pillai, Kavya has alleged that she is concerned that police may have been trying to "implicate" her in the case. Kavya however has maintained that she has no association with Sunil Kumar. Meanwhile, the remand period of actor Dileep has been extended till September 28. Besides, she had also raised allegations against ADGP B Sandhya, director Shrikumar Menon and actress and former wife of Dileep, Manju Warrier.

Kavya and her mother were questioned earlier as part of the ongoing investigation.

She accused the probe team of "selectively leaking news" to the media against her to carry out "valueless but targeted media trial" on the pending case. He is said to have paid a visit to Kavya's residence at Vennala in Kochi before he allegedly kidnapped and sexually assaulted a woman actor along with his associates at the behest of Dileep. According to police, apart from giving instruction to Suni to take nude photograph of the actress, he had told him how to assault her. However, a conspiracy angle cropped up much later that led to Dileep's arrest. Dileep has been in custody since July this year and was allowed to walk out of jail only for a day in September. The court has deferred the pronouncement of verdict for Monday.

Six persons, including "Pulsar" Suni, Martin and Vigeesh, were arrested in connection with the incident.

The actor also pointed out that he has strictly followed the directions of the Angamaly Magistrate Court during the two-hour permission given by the court to perform the rituals of his father's shraadham.

The young actress was waylaid and attacked in a moving vehicle in Kochi on February 17.

The actress, who has worked in Tamil and Telugu films, was abducted and allegedly molested inside her auto for two hours by the accused, who had forced their way into the vehicle on February 17 night and later escaped in a busy area in Kochi.
