Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Tuesday postponed the hearing on the bail petition of actor Dileep to September 26.
The state government will convey its stand on the issue on September 26 as it sought time to respond to the bail petition. The defendant’s counsel has sought early hearing on the plea.
Meanwhile, the court made some observations that go against the accused. The court said there is no change in the situation with regard to the case and wondered why the defendant moved the court again with bail petition.
The Prosecution submitted before the court that there is no situation as of now to consider the bail application.
The bail application was submitted through his counsel Raman Pillai. This is his fifth bail plea in 69 days since his arrest. The Angamaly court and the High Court had rejected his bail two times each.
Dileep had submitted 35-page bail petition. In his petition, the actor levelled allegations against director Sreekumar Menon and ex-wife Manju Warrier. He had also assured that he will not try to influence the witnesses if he gets bail. He also submitted that projects worth Rs 50 crore face uncertain future as he is in jail.
In his petition, Dileep also mentioned that Manju Warrier shares a warm relationship with ADGP Sandhya.
He was arrested on July 10 on charges of conspiracy in the actress attack case. He is entitled for statutory bail after 90 days of arrest.
However, if the probe team files charge sheet before this period, he may have to continue in jail until the completion of the trial. The investigators are planning to file the charge sheet before October 10.
