Supreme Court had denied Dileep the memory that contained the main evidence. The top court also asked the state government whether the memory card should be considered as a document or evidence in the case. The state government replied that it will be considered an evidence in the case.
Thiruvananthapuram: The Supreme Court on Friday said the Mollywood actor Dileep would not be granted access to the memory card which contains the copy of the visuals of the attack. The memory card will be considered the main evidence in the actress attack case.
The two-judge bench presided by Justice AM Khanwilkar pronounced the verdict. The other member of the bench is Justice Dinesh Maheshwari.
Considering the actor's plea, the Supreme Court had also asked the state government whether the memory card should be considered as a document or evidence in the case. To this, the state government informed that it is an evidence in the case.
The visuals of the attack were transferred from the phone of the main accused in the case, Pulsar Suni in the memory card. Dileep has always maintained that the visuals of the memory card will prove his innocence, and approached the court to obtain the visuals.
Dileep's plea to attain the copy of the memory card was primarily rejected by the Angamaly Magistrate court on February 7, 2018 and was even rejected by the Kerala high court in August 2018. Following these rejections, Dileep moved the Supreme Court.
On February 17, 2017, a south Indian actor was abducted and assaulted by a group of men in a moving car.
