Visuals of attack shouldn’t be given to Dileep even under strict terms, says actress in SC
New Delhi: Under no situation should visuals of the attack be handed over to Dileep, requested the actress in her written argument submitted at the Supreme Court.
“In order to lead a peaceful life, I need to remain anonymous. Handing over the visuals to Dileep would affect my privacy. The Supreme Court Constitution Bench itself has said that privacy is a fundamental right. Unbiased trial is the right of the accused, but it shouldn't affect my privacy. Hence the copy of the visuals shouldn’t be handed over to Dileep. But I have no objection to Dileep or anyone associated with him watching the visuals,” she said.
Meanwhile, the state government also demanded not to hand over the copy of the visuals to Dileep, even though it is document evidence. The memory card which contains the visuals is material evidence, but the visuals are document evidence. If it is handed over to Dileep, there are chances that it will be misused. Also it would affect the privacy of the actress, government said in the written argument submitted at SC.
Dileep in his written argument submitted at the court, said that the visuals were extremely essential to prove his innocence in the case. He alleged that the female voice in the visuals was manipulated. The visuals can be watermarked and given to prevent any misuse, he added.
As the three parties in the case have submitted their arguments, it is reported that the bench under Justice A M Khanwilkar will pronounce the verdict in the plea submitted by Dileep, demanding the copy of the visuals, very soon.
