Kochi: The Kerala High Court has deferred the anticipatory bail plea of actor Dileep in connection with the case related to the conspiracy to murder the investigating officials of actress attack case to Tuesday. The prosecution informed the court that the actor is unlikely to cooperate with the investigation. As the court has restricted the probe team from arresting the actor, the investigation is interrupted. Hence, the actor should be taken into custody for detailed interrogation, said the prosecution.
Granting bail to Dileep would create a false belief that people like him will get special privileges in court, pointed out the prosecution.
The prosecution stated that digital evidence in the case has been collected. Dileep's move to send his mobile phones for forensic examination was also criticised in the court.The phones were sent to Mumbai to sabotage the case, alleged the prosecution.
The information on the phones was retrieved by the investigation team using CDR and IMEA records. Dileep did not cooperate in this matter and sent the phones away. This can be viewed as a non-cooperation, the prosecution added.
Meantime, the actor produced six phones in a sealed envelope before the court on Monday. Earlier, the court directed that Dileep's three mobile phones, his brother Anoop's two phones and his brother-in-law Sooraj's phones must be produced in the High Court before 10.15 am on Monday.
Dileep's lawyer informed the court that every male member in the family was named in the charge sheet. Only the women in his house including his 84-year-old mother are exempted from the case. He added that planned attempts are being made to arrest the actor.
