Actor Dileep In Further Trouble In Assault Case?:- Ahead of preparing a supplementary charge sheet against Malayalam actor Dileep, a meeting was held by the Special Investigation Team (SIT), who is investigating the actress assault case.
ADGP B. Sandhya, who has the overall charge of the investigation, chaired the meeting. It was reported in the meeting that a set of medical documents were presented by Dileep. This was done by the actor only to show that on the day of the abduction and assault of the actress, he was under treatment in a hospital. It was a conscious attempt by him to mislead the investigation, believed the probe team. Dileep is one of the prime accused in the case.
Dileep, during the interrogation, told the police that he was under treatment at a private hospital for a week, starting from February 14. The relevant medical documents were even presented by him. Meanwhile, the cops connected with the investigation, have a different version to say. According to the investigators, Dileep only visited the hospital during the day and was never admitted for treatment. The relevant documents were procured from the doctor sometime later, said the police. The police supported their claim by citing that the actor was present at a few film locations during these days.
The actor was under treatment from February 14 to 18, but was not admitted as an inpatient, said Dr Hyder Ali to reporters. Dr. Ali treated Dileep in the above said days. As per the doctor, Dileep used to visit the hospital in the morning to take the medicines and returned a couple of hours later. Moreover, to give him medication every evening, the paramedical staff were also regularly sent to his residence.
Even as the SIT is mulling naming the actor as the first accused in the supplementary chargesheet in the case, the illness and treatment of Dileep have emerged. The SIT is considering to make the actor the first accused on the ground that he hatched the entire conspiracy and hired the goons to commit the crime.
