The Kerala High Court has dismissed actor Dileep’s plea to quash the conspiracy to murder case filed against him by the Kerala Police Crime Branch.

On January 9, the Crime Branch registered a case based on a complaint filed by an officer investigating the 2017 Kerala actor assault case. The case was filed based on a purported audio clip of Dileep, which was telecast by a TV channel, in which the actor was allegedly heard conspiring to harm the official.

Last week, the Kerala Crime Branch probing the 2017 actor assault case sought the cancellation of Dileep’s bail. The police said Dileep influenced the witnesses while out on bail.

CONSPIRACY TO MURDER

Dileep is the eighth accused in the 2017 actor assault case. A further investigation was launched after Dileep’s former friend Balachandra Kumar came out with audio clips allegedly belonging to Dileep, where the actor threatens and plans an attack on the investigation officers of the case.

Justice Ziyad Rahman AA asked the prosecution how mere utterances made by the actor could be deemed as conspiracy.

The prosecution maintained that Dileep’s threats were not just utterances. The allegations against him could be corroborated by the audio recordings and other evidence submitted by director Balachandra Kumar.
