KOCHI: The prosecution in the actress abduction case on Wednesday informed the Kerala High Court that arrested Malayalam actor Dileep had offered Rs 3 crore for abduction of the actress in February this year.

The prosecution informed that Dileep offered Pulsar Suni Rs 1.50 crore for carrying out the abduction, and in case he gets caught in the act by the police, the compensation would be doubled.

The actress was abducted while on way by road from Thrissur to Kochi.

The High Court was hearing the bail plea of Dileep, for the third time at the High Court, and the fifth overall, since his arrest on July 10 in the case.

The court posted the verdict on this for a later date.
