  • The High Court said that it is not in favour of postponing the trial and that the proceedings will begin as scheduled. 
  • The HC clarified it after hearing a petition submitted by actor Dileep, one of the accused in the case.
  • Dileep, in his petition, had sought visuals of the attack, claiming it is entitled to him as an accused.

The Kerala High Court on Monday ruled that the trial in the Kochi actress attack case will not be delayed any further. 

The HC clarified it after hearing a petition submitted by actor Dileep, one of the accused in the case. The court said that it is not in favour of postponing the trial and that the proceedings will begin on Wednesday as scheduled. 

Dileep, in his petition, had sought visuals of the attack, claiming it is entitled to him as an accused. The actor had sought to halt the trial until the court passes the judgement over his petition.

Earlier, the actor had filed a petition in the Angamaly magistrate court, seeking for the visuals. But the court rejected Dileep's petition, saying there are chances of the visuals being misused if it is handed over to the accused.

However, Dileep later approached the High Court asking for the visuals of the attack. As per CrPC section 207, the accused is entitled to have access to all documents related to the case against him/her.
