Kochi: The survivor of the actress attack case said in the High Court that if the visuals on the memory card in possession of the trial court are leaked it will affect her life. The actor said that she has been suffering from distress inflicted by the attack for the past five years. T B Mini, her lawyer, requested for a fair and honest investigation in the court.
Meanwhile, Kerala High Court delayed the pronouncement of the verdict in a petition seeking more time for the probe into the case. Justice Kauser Edappagath changed the date after hearing the petition on Wednesday. Director General of Prosecution T A Shaji opined that since it was found that the memory card was tampered, it must be sent for forensic tests.
Dileep’s lawyer, B Raman Pillai, said that by asking to inspect the memory card possessed by the court, the investigation team is trying to sabotage the judicial system. The DGP, however, clarified that such an allegation was not raised by the prosecution.
Dileep has also presented a detailed statement in the High Court dismissing the allegation raised in the request submitted by the prosecution. The hearing of the petition filed by the survivor alleging political intervention in further probe of the case was moved to June 10. This petition is being reviewed by the bench headed by Justice Bechu Kurian Thomas.
