KOCHI: The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has asked the Chief Secretary (CS) to look into the allegation that there was a conspiracy against actor Dileep in the actress assault case. The PMO move came on a petition by Salim India, a writer and member of film fraternity FEFKA, The petitioner has received a copy of the letter from the PMO as a reply to his complaint filed on August 30, much before Dileep was released on bail.
In his complaint, Salim said Dileep was booked in the case even though the victim had not made any complaint against the actor in her statement to the investigation team. Also, he was arrested two months after the FIR was filed in the case based on the statement of the first accused. These facts, among others, give reasons to suspect foul play in the case, the complaint stated. Dileep’s mother Sarojam had also lodged a complaint with the state government stating her son was framed in the case.
