Kerala HC dismisses plea of survivor in actress attack case; trial court to continue hearing case


Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Thursday dismissed a petition demanding to change the trial court in the actress attack case of 2017.

The case was initially heard at the Special CBI Court in Ernakulam under Justice Honey M Varghese. However, the case was later moved to Sections Court after Justice Honey M Varghese received promotion and was transferred here. Based on this, the survivor filed a petition questioning the decision to change courts.

The Court viewed that the case was handed over to the trial court based on Kerala High Court and cannot be overruled through an administrative order. In the petition, the survivor alleged that the husband of Justice Honey M Varghese has close connections with Dileep, the eight accused in the case. Therefore, she remarked in the petition that she would receive no justice. However, the court dismissed the petition.
