Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Friday asked actor Dileep and the other five accused in the murder conspiracy case why are they not submitting their mobile phones to the Crime Branch team. It will hold a special sitting on Saturday to finalise on the matter.
The prosecution had approached the HC with a fresh petition saying that the actor was not cooperating with the probe. The actor had said that Crime Branch cannot demand his phones and he does not trust the investigating officers.
The court reminded the actor that his anticipatory bail plea will be rejected if he does not cooperate with the probe team. The court also asked why is he afraid of submitting the phone.
Dileep argued before the court that he is afraid of his privacy.
The hearing of the case is underway and the court is expected to pronounce an order soon.
The prosecution had requested the court to direct Dileep and five other accused in the case to submit their mobile phone before the probe team. Dileep and others are not ready to submit their mobile phones due to some evil intention, said the prosecution.
While considering the anticipatory bail plea in the conspiracy case, the court directed Dileep and others to cooperate with the probe team. But the refusal to submit mobile phones is a violation of the bail conditions, the prosecution argued.
The bail plea will be considered by the court on February 2.
