The special investigation team (SIT), probing the Malayalam actress abduction and sexual assault case, has named actor Dileep as the eight accused, while his ex-wife Manju Warrier is one of the key witnesses in its supplementary chargesheet.
The subsidiary charge sheet will have 14 accused, including Dileep, 385 witnesses and 12 confidential statements. More than 50 witnesses are from the cineworld.
According to the reports, the cop, Anish, and one Vipinlal, who helped Suni to contact Dileep from the jail, have been named as accused, who turned approvers in the chargesheet.
Dileep is currently out on conditional bail after spending 85 days in the Aluva Sub-jail for his alleged involvement in the sensational case. He even secured permission from the Kerala High Court to travel to Dubai for a business purpose even as he faces the charges of violating the conditions of his bail arrangement by allegedly trying to influence the witnesses.
The Kerala High Court directed to release his passport for six days. The prosecution strongly opposed the actor’s plea alleging that he tried to influence witnesses in the case.
The judge in his order permitted him to travel abroad. Dileep had surrendered his passport as part of obtaining bail in the case.
The police have charged Dileep with hatching a conspiracy to abduct and assault the actress in a moving car and film the act. Six persons, including key accused Pulsar Suni, have already been arrested in the case.
The actress, who has worked in Tamil and Telugu films, was abducted and allegedly molested inside her car for two hours by the accused, who had forced their way into the vehicle on February 17 night and later escaped in a busy area.
Earlier, Dileep had accused Manju of leading a “big conspiracy” against him in connection with the sensational case. Earlier, in his bail petition to the Kerala High Court, Dileep blamed Manju of being the first person to make the allegations of a conspiracy in the attack on the actress, suggesting that she had the intentions of framing him in the case.
