Kochi: Actor Dileep, accused in actress attack case and his lawyers have harshly criticised the prosecution over their request for three months time to probe the actress attack case. The actor's lawyer said that the prosecution is trying to insult the judiciary by claiming that the hash value of the memory card used in the Dileep's phone was changed.

The defendants opposed the petition filed by the crime branch seeking more time to continue the probe into the case.

"What is wrong with the court examining the memory card? The court has the right to examine it. If there are any flaws in the part of the court proceedings, only the vigilance unit of the high court has the right to examine it," the defendants said.

They also said that crime branch has no reason to check the memory card.

Crime Branch does not hold powers to examine memory card which is in possession of the court, pointed out Dileep's lawyer.

The government, however, told the court that it had not made any move to insult the court and had only pointed out certain facts and requested an examination as part of the investigation.

Dileep told the court that the crime branch's allegation that he was in possession of the footage of the attack on the actress was false. The actor also opposed the need for more time to examine digital evidence citing that the results of the forensic examination came out three months ago. Therefore, Dileep requested that no more time should be given so that it could affect the trial of the case.
