Chennai: Popular Malayalam actor Dileep was arrested on Monday in connection to allegedly kidnapping and assaulting an actress.
Just days after actor Dileep was arrested in connection with the case, his manager Appunni is now absconding. He has been on the run from his house for the last 24 hours.
The court has also given permission to continue questioning him till tomorrow and denied his bail plea.
The Kerala Chief Minister has also appointed a special prosecutor for the case. The actor’s bank accounts will be frozen.
Breaking her silence on the arrest of Malayalam superstar Dileep in her abduction case, the actress on Thursday said she was as shocked as anyone else by the turn of events and that she just wants the truth to come out fast.
“He (Dileep) says that he has been framed in the case. The need of the hour is that the truth should come out. If he is innocent, it should come out quickly and if not, even then the truth should come out fast. All are equal before law,” she said.
Actor Dileep, who uses just one name, was arrested on Monday in connection with the abduction and molestation of the actress in February and was sent to police custody on Tuesday by a lower court near here.
Meanwhile actress Remya Nambeesan has said that the actress who was kidnapped and allegedly molested had stayed at her house after the incident. She added, “She is my good friend. I understood the pain and agony that she underwent after the incident. I helped her a lot during the time. It is very tough for anyone to face such a situation in their life.”
Remya Nambeesan said, “She fought against all odds and was back to shoot quickly. She was friendly to all. Whoever has done the crime deserves to be punished.”
“The actor who is allegedly involved in the incident has been removed from artistes association. Guilty should not be spared and the innocent should not be punished,” she added.
