Actor Dileep and his friend Nadirshah, who are under a cloud in the Kerala actress abduction case, will be approaching the Kerala High Court seeking anticipatory bail, according to TV reports. The two, who were subjected to sustained interrogation last week, are likely to be questioned again soon.

Meanwhile, the police have reportedly confirmed the authenticity of a video which apparently shows the prime accused Pulsar Suni attacking the actress in a movie vehicle. The two-and-half minute clip apparently shows him trying to sexually assault her. The police is considering this as clinching evidence against the accused as his DNA has already been recovered from the clothes worn by the actress that day, said reports.

While there are suggestions that Dileep and Nadirshah will be questioned again today, there is a possibility that his wife Kavya and mother will also be questioned in the case.

The police team investigating the case have already searched Kavya’s house as well as a textile shop owned by her.

The probe team has also secured phone records that seem to suggest that Pulsar Suni called Nadirshah at least thrice from jail. One of these calls lasted about eight minutes. Among the four numbers he called from jail is one belonging to Dileep’s manager Appunni.

    In the first episodes of the case Dileep said they don't know Pulsar later images came out in the form of selfies that proves otherwise and gives credibility to his leaked story. He said it was Kavya madam...Now what is happening through media is known reconsolidation or rewriting the story, it is done through bringing tangential events into focus during the period of case like calling out actor innocent misogynist, bolstering feminism, filing cases against people who have mentioned the abused actress name (most of us don't know and the media hasn't taken an initiative to generate awareness regarding the law)...everything is almost clear now...first there were reports of Dileep bought 20 core worth of lands using the actress as benami...now that isn't even discussed...a while back Jagadish was ready to reveal cases such as that which have been made go away during the election period, the whistle blowing factor involved might be what hampers the case.

    These stars should not be spared. Moreover they are under the shadow of Megastars. Impartial investigation is required to trap these criminals. No shame for the Mega stars to support such indecent guys. All are above 50 - 60 years of age. Still unwise to support illegitimacy. At least Mamooty Sir has to take stern action. We wish he does to reveal the truth and support the vulnerable actress. A big gangster against a helpless actress. Unbelievable !!!
