Further, the court said that he should also be produced before the court on the same day of his arrest. Meanwhile, Civic Chandran is likely to move a bail plea today.
He appeared before the DySP office accompanied by his lawyer. According to the complainant, the veteran writer sexually assaulted her while attending a book launch event on April 17 in Kozhikode.
