Prominent Malayalam actor Dileep was arrested on Monday in connection with the conspiracy behind the case pertaining to the abduction and sexual assault of a leading actress in February this year. Last week, police had questioned Dileep and film director Nadirsha for 13 hours in connection with the probe. Subsequently, police had raided business premises of his wife Kavya Madhavan.

Police said they took Dileep into custody on Monday morning and his arrest was recorded in the evening. The conspiracy behind the attack was hatched several years back and it was in the second attempt that the actress was attacked in the late night of February 19 in a moving car near Kochi.

The police had charge-sheeted the supari gang, which had attacked the actress, in April this year. Last month, police reopened the conspiracy behind the attack following the expose of a letter purportedly written by the gang leader Sunil Kumar alias Pulsar Suni to Dileep seeking financial aid. In the meantime, Dileep too had complained to police that he was being blackmailed by Sunil Kumar seeking money.

      A victim of ual assault read this out in a court of law which I felt was so true in the assault case on an actress. You took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today, the damage is done, no one can undo it. And now we both have a choice. We can let this destroy us, I can remain angry and hurt and you can be in denial, or we can face it head on, I accept the pain, you accept the punishment, and we move on.” Just wish Dileep reads this and accepts the punishment and be more responsible towards society, being a Father of a daughter, a Husband of two and not the least a Son. It is very sad to see that assault arranger gets far greater support and less is seen for the victim despite being part of the same fraternity. Hope everyone understands that Rape is one of the most appalling things that one human being can do to another and yet there is no other crime about which our society is so hesitant about. Our Gods own country.

        I hope this case does not go the Govindsamy way ,strictest punishment irrespective of position or power should be administered. We had a great opinion of innocent as a man he too proved to fall from our opinion ..... .no one is innocent in this field I hate to remind myself when these are on judgement panels

                  The Kerala Chief Minister and police deserves credit for carrying out a good investigation and arresting a super star, which has never happened in the state before. The actor Dileep, who rose to stardom from being an assistant on the film sets, had lost the respect of Kerala women after he divorced his wife and married another actress who was said to be responsible for this. Dileep is known for his unholy alliances and his clandestine acts have now come out in the open.

                    One way to find criminals is to look for those who support the criminal. Just inquire into the affairs of these supporters, who vociferously supported Dileep, and it is guaranteed that shocking skeletons will fall out of the cupboards. Joe Pulickel
