Actor Dharmajan Bolgatty broke down outside the Aluva sub-jail after the Kerala High Court handed Dileep conditional bail in the Kochi actress attack case.
Dharmajan, who is very close to Dileep, arrived at the jail to welcome him ahead of his release. The actor was visibly emotional and broke down when mediapersons asked him how he feels.
"I am happy he is getting out but... I just want to see him once," Dharmajan told Asianet News before his emotions got the better of him.
The HC bench, headed by Justice Sunil Thomas, pronounced the verdict on Dileep's bail plea on Tuesday afternoon. The judge also remarked that the investigation is progressing well.
As per the bail conditions, Dileep has to surrender his passport and issue a bond worth Rs 1 lakh. The actor has also been directed not to try influencing the witnesses or to attempt destroying any pieces of evidence.
This was the fifth time that Dileep approached a court seeking bail, ever since his arrest on charges of conspiracy on July 10. The High Court and the Angamaly first class judicial magistrate's court had both rejected his bail plea twice before.
