Director Baiju, on the other hand, spoke during a programme telecast in Mathrubhumi News and said that a woman hailing from Kozhikode called him up and revealed some information regarding Kalabhavan’s death. The woman apparently told Baiju that she had proof for deals that were struck between Mani and Dileep, followed by which there was a dispute. The woman claimed over the call that this could have led to Mani’s death.

Following this, the CBI recorded the director’s statement, reports a few media reports. In the mean while, the investigation about the Malayalam actress abduction case in ongoing.

Dileep was slapped with conspiracy in the actress’ abduction and molestation case and as a result, Angamaly Judicial Magistrate court sentenced him with two day custody under police officials for interrogation on Wednesday. He was removed from the position of being a treasurer for Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) and fellow actors have come in support of the victim and have condemned him. His membership from Film Employees Federation of Kerala (FEFKA) was also rescinded.

    You can expect the local CPM govt to keep the pot boiling for this has dwarfed all the other news especially the one regarding the land scam where land prone to flooding and bad for development belonging to the CPM cadres and their relatives have been procured at exhorbitant prices.

        police across the country are CORRUPT, INCOMPETENT, PERVERTED AND ABSOLUTELY SHAMELESS. They serve their political masters and their families....not the people. This is a part of the SYSTEMIC CORRUPTION that we suffer from.

            How come people are accusing Dileep only after his arrest? If he had committed serious crimes before this why didn't they talk about it before? Everybody tends to believe that Dileep is guilty. He may or may not be. Will he be so stupid to plan such a crime with a Rowdy who can blurt out his name anytime? People already have a bad opinion about him due to his divorce. If he had a normal married life no body would have doubted him. This case may be more complicated than it appears to be.

              If you want to commit a crime then obviously you are going to contact a rowdy. As far as the above mentioned rowdy blurting out names is concerned, please remember that the rowdy divulged the names only after exhauating every other option (He simply didn't have any other choice). It is difficult to fathom that the police would arrest such an influential person without proper evidence. There are other divorced actors as well in the industry but they don't have to face any such allegations hence proving your argument false.

              Actually now it is nonsense drama on going in the name of Actor Dileep. Shamelessly kerala police as well as some opponents of Dileep are alleging each and every criminal cases which taken place in the past. In the coming days apparently thes people may even allege cases like Kennedy's murder, World Trade Centre Attack, Mumbai Train Blast, Nirbhaya case etc. etc. and bluff that they got all evidence and proof with them and once when the case goes to court they will not be able to prove anything.

                Typically Indian mentally of trivializing serious crimes. Even Bill Cosby and Tiger Woods have proven to have dark sides, so who the is Dileep and why people think he could not have committed crimes. If there are accusations of his involvement, then these should be investigated. Don't sweep everything under the carpet. Big and powerful people should not escape the hands of law

                  For me, Dileep is greater than Bill Cosby and Tiger Woods. Menon has a point - we all know what Kerala under commies is capable of. I hope Dileep is proved and is factually innocent.
