Kavya Madhavan files anticipatory bail plea in HC

Actor Kavya Madhavan, Dileep's wife, files for anticipatory bail in connection with assault case

Malayalam actress assault case: Dileep's wife Kavya Madhavan seeks anticipatory bail

Kochi: Mollywood actress Kavya Madhavan, who was earlier questioned by the Kerala police in connection with the February 17 actress abduction case, is likely to approach the court for an anticipatory bail plea.

Kavya filed the anticipatory bail plea of her husband before the court on Saturday. The police had questioned Kavya and her mother ahead of Dileep's arrest on July 10 for his involvement in the conspiracy that led to the abduction and molestation of the actress.

There was no justification for implication and arrest of the petitioner in this case other than to satisfy a powerful group behind this entire pre-planned drama, she stated. She reportedly denied having any knowledge about the plot to assault the actress and also maintained that Dileep too has no role in the assault.

Also, investigating officer Baiju Paulose and Sudarsan, Superintendent of Police, had visited Laksyah on September 8 and issued threats of arraigning her as an accused unless certain illegal demands raised by them were complied with, she said.

She accused the probe team of "selectively leaking news" to the media against her to carry out "valueless but targeted media trial" on the pending case.

The high court had dismissed Dileep's second bail petition on August 29, after considering the evidence against the actor produced by the prosecution in a sealed cover. He also pointed out that his remand period has passed over 60 days and that the investigation into it was over.

With the arguments of the defense and prosecution coming to an end, the Angamaly magistrate court will give its verdict on Dileep's bail-plea on Monday. According to police, apart from giving instruction to Suni to take nude photograph of the actress, he had told him how to assault her.

The young actress was waylaid and attacked in a moving auto in Kochi on February 17.

The police had arrested Pulsar Suni, who had worked as a driver of many film personalities, six days after the incident.
