A selfie which has Dileep and two police personnel is going viral lately. Dileep was arrested on Monday in connection over his alleged role in the kidnap and assault of a popular Malayalam actress. 

 

The photo since then has been doing the rounds gone on social media and has been criticised widely. People have also started lashing out at the police department for clicking a selfie with Dileep as now he is an accused in a criminal conspiracy, not a "VIP."

 

While the world is talking about what led to his arrest, police personnel take selfies with actor Dileep inside police station

Many in the public fell for the hoax, as in the selfie Dileep was seen wearing a similar shirt when he got arrested.  But after the selfie went viral, one of the police officers in the picture came out with an explanation.

 

 

Arun Simon, who is CPO (Civil police officer) shared the information that the selfie which is going viral is fake, "Friends, I am Arun Simon, the CPO in Irinjalakuda station. The photo with Dileep, saying "Selfie in custody" is fake. It was taken when Dileep had come to Irinjalakuda for the shooting of a movie called Georgettan's Pooram."
