  • The Kerala High Court has deferred the hearing in director Nadirshah's anticipatory bail plea to Wednesday, September 13
  • This has put Nadrishah in a tight spot as he has made accusations against the police, who are now free to have a go at him
  • The probe team had asked Nadirshah to appear for questioning at the Aluva police club on Wednesday but he did not turn up

The Kerala High Court on Monday informed director Nadirshah that it cannot prevent his arrest in connection with the Kochi actress attack case.  

The court also deferred the hearing in Nadirshah's anticipatory bail plea to Wednesday, September 13, meaning the police can arrest the director before that if they choose to.

Nadirshah had approached the High Court on Thursday, seeking anticipatory bail, after the police wanted to question him again. In his bail plea, he said he is innocent but the police are "threatening to arrest him" and making baseless accusations against him.

The bail plea being postponed has put Nadrishah in a tight spot as he has made accusations against the police, who are now free to have a go at him at least till Wednesday.

The probe team had asked Nadirshah to appear for questioning at the Aluva police club on Wednesday but he did not turn up, claiming health issues. It is understood that the director informed the police he has been hospitalised for acidity and chest pain and is undergoing treatment.

The police are now planning to question Nadirshah as soon as his health gets better. Several reports claim that the possibility of his arrest cannot be ruled out anymore. The recent developments beg the question that whether he had lied to the police when questioned earlier.

The police had questioned Nadirshah and Dileep for around 13 hours in a marathon grilling session on June 28. Dileep was subsequently arrested on July 10 on charges of conspiracy.
