And with reports about a PR company (or companies) being hired by Dileep's team to help defend him on social media being looked into by the police, any support for the actor on these channels would not go un-scrutinised.

Dileep, who has served nearly 10 days in jail, had approached the court on Thursday but it had reserved the verdict. However, the police are also investigating all financial transactions and real estate deals of the actor to determine the real motive for what had transpired.

Dileep was charged under Sections 120 (B), 342, 366,376 (D), 411, 506 (1), 201, 212 & 34 of the Indian Penal Code and sections 66 (E) & 67 (A) of the Information Technology Act.

The bail plea also stated that there is no enough evidence to arrest Dileep while the action is only based on the statement of the prime accused Sunil Kumar.

The defence whereas argued that Dileep was arrested on conspiracy charges without any evidence linking him to the crime. He said he also believed that "Pulsar" Suni was trying to blackmail Dileep, arrested in the case.


He applied for bail to the high court after a lower court turned down an earlier appeal. Dileep's counsel had also asked why the actress didn't say any word about his alleged involvement in the crime. As the investigations are still continuing, it is likely that the prosecution will oppose granting him bail before the process is complete.

There are unconfirmed reports that those close to Dileep have been talking to some prominent Supreme Court lawyers regarding further actions.

Appearing for the actor, Senior Advocate K Ramakumar contended that there was not even an iota of evidence to connect his client with the incident or the conspiracy. Thus he has to continue at the Aluva Sub-Jail till further orders.

Thomas lodged a complaint with Palarivattom police on Monday. The mobile phone used to record the visuals of the alleged crime and the original memory card are yet to be recovered. So how the case will add up once all the evidence is in, remains unclear.
