The Kerala High Court on Monday rejected the bail plea of Malayalam actor Dileep, who was arrested in connection with the abduction and assault of an actress.

The prosecution opposed the bail plea claiming they have strong evidence against the actor. He is facing charges of criminal conspiracy in the molestation case. Dileep, however, pleaded innocence and claimed he was being framed in the case. The actor has been booked under several IPC Sections, including 376-D (gangrape), 366 (kidnapping), 212 (wrongful confinement), 120-b (criminal conspiracy).

On June 29, Dileep was interrogated by a police team for 11 hours. The police are still searching for Dileep’s manager Appunni. Earlier this year in February, the actress was allegedly abducted and molested inside a car by six people including Pulsar Sunni, the main accused in the case.
