The Kerala High Court on Monday suspended the ongoing trial of a case pertaining to abduction and sexual assault of an actress in a special CBI court till Friday. The ruling came ahead of the trial court’s preparations to depose the witnesses in the case from Tuesday.

The prosecution, last month, had approached the high court on the grounds that the trial court was behaving in a ‘biased’ and ‘hostile’ manner, and sought a change of the court hearing the case.

The victim alleged that the woman judge of the trial court remained a mute spectator even as the lawyers of the accused actor, Dileep, subjected her to an uncomfortable line of questioning.

She also said that the court had failed to record certain portions of the testimonials deposed by the petitioner deliberately and without any lawful jurisdiction.
