Huge shock to actor Deelip yet again

Dileep's manager Appunni, who is wanted by the police, is missing.

Another reason for refusing bail was that the crucial material object, the mobile phone used to record the sexual assault and the memory card in which videographed materials were stored, had not yet been recovered, the court said. He also added that Dileep could influence the witnesses from the Malyalam fim industry and sabotage the investigation and trial.

At this juncture, fans and supporters of Dileep will find it hard to criticise the police's investigations. Dileep's shows organised overseas have also come under the authorities' scanner and the actor will have to provide details of his income to the investigating agencies.

The figure was down 67 per cent from a year ago, partly reflecting the loss of contributions from the appliances division. Nevertheless, second-quarter revenue and earnings were modestly ahead of analysts┬┤ consensus forecasts.

Last month, Dileep was questioned for close to 13 hours after the claimed that he and his director friend Nadirshah were being blackmailed for 1.5 crore by the kidnappers that incuded Pulsar Suni, the main accused. "Hence, the possibility of the petitioner influencing or threatening the several witnesses can not be ruled out", the HC order said.

Since the high court has observed that there is prima facie evidence against Dileep, the chance for getting bail from the SC is also meagre. The memory card is a potential threat to the victim and there is a possibility of the alleged accused interfering in the probe using the memory card, the judge aid. During the same time period, Rs 1lakh was deposited in Suni's account by an unnamed person. Questioning the prosecution's story, Dileep's counsel had submitted that meeting of two persons can not be termed a conspiracy unless there is meeting of minds.

Local reports have said that after the Kerala HC denied Dileep bail, the actor seemed dejected as his lawyers had expressed confidence in getting a ruling in his favour. Dileep and Suni were present at the hotel and the room was booked in Dileep's name. Dileep believed that his family life was spoiled by the complainant.
