Malayalam superstar Dileep arrested in actress abduction case

Aluva (Kerala): Malayalam superstar Dileep was on Monday evening arrested in connection with the abduction and molestation of a popular actress in a car in February this year.

Dileep had been questioned last month for 13 hours in the case and let off

Kerala Police chief Loknath Behra told reporters in Thiruvananthapuram that Dileep has been arrested.

On Monday, he was questioned at an undisclosed location near here, and after five hours the police probe team recorded the arrest of the actor.

Around 7.20 pm, Dileep was brought to the Aluva Police club from the place where he was questioned.

Dileep is understood to be behind the abduction of the young actress on February 17.

Dileep had been questioned last month for 13 hours in the case and let off.

The Congress party demanded that Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan give up the Home portfolio, alleging that he tried to derail the investigation process by stating that there was no conspiracy.

State Congress president MM Hassan said the Left government had promised security for women, but in the actress abduction case, after the arrest of prime accused Pulsar Suni, Vijayan had immediately dismissed any conspiracy angle to the abduction.

Leader of Opposition and former Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala demanded that Vijayan apologise to the people for his statement that there was no conspiracy in the case.

Meanwhile, a group of youth shouted slogans against Dileep in front of the Aluva Police club, when the actor was brought.

A hotel that the star owns in in Kochi was attacked and ransacked by angry youth.

Angry Congress workers were seen shouting slogans demanding the resignation of Lok Sabha member Innocent who is also president of AMMA – Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes, who had strongly defended Dileep.

None of the big names in the film industry – Mammootty and Mohanlal – have said a word in this case.

On February 17, the hugely popular actress was travelling from Thrissur to Kochi by road when she was abducted. After almost two hours she was dumped near the house of director-turned-actor Lal, who upon hearing her harrowing experience, informed police.

She was reported to have been molested enroute.

The police probe team arrested Pulsar Suni and his aides, who effected the kidnap, a week after the incident.
