Kochi: In the conspiracy case against actor Dileep, a court here recorded the confidential statement of Sai Shankar, the cyber expert who was booked for allegedly tampering with evidence in Dileep's phone. He has given his statement before the First Class Judicial Magistrate Court II. Notably, Shankar has been named as the seventh accused in the conspiracy case.
