The trial in the controversial abduction and rape case of a Kerala actress, in which popular actor Dileep is an accused, is nearing completion in a trial court in Ernakulum.
But what has stirred the hornet’s nest recently is the gag order by the trial court — based on the petition of the accused, not the victim.
The case that triggered a storm in Kerala dates back to February 17, 2017, when the actress was allegedly kidnapped and raped by a gang who were allegedly engaged by Dileep.
The assault was said to be a case of revenge by Dileep because the actress revealed details of his affair with another actress to his first wife and actress Manju Warrier.
