Actor Dileep to step out for a day after spending close to two months in jail
Malayalam actor Dileep who is currently lodged in the Aluva sub-jail has been granted permission to step out for a day on September 6. Dileep has been granted permission to take part in his father's death anniversary rituals.
The actor who was arrested on July 10 has spent close to two months in jail accused of conspiracy in the February 2017, actress molestation case. Dileep will step out of jail and take part in the rituals that are scheduled to be held at Aluva Manapuram from 7 AM to 11 AM on September 6.
The prosecution argued that permission should not be granted to the actor since he had skipped the ritual last year as well. Despite the argument, Dileep was granted permission. The actor's custody has been extended till September 16 while the Kerala High Court rejected his bail petition for the third time earlier this week.
Accused of conspiring the abduction and assault of an actress, Dileep is currently lodged at the Aluva prison. Desperate pleas by his family seeking his release to the government of Kerala has elicited no response. Dileep has contended that he is a victim of a conspiracy and has nothing to do with the actress molestation case.
