A noted South Indian film actress was harassed for two hours allegedly by a gang of five men, who forced their way into her car before fleeing at a busy area here.
Malayalam actors have taken the shift in attention from the survivor to Dileep quite seriously and very personally, and yesterday, actors like Aju Varghese and Salim Kumar took the opportunity to express their support for Dileep.
After nearly two hours of drive through the Kochi city area, they left the actress in the car in Palarivattam and fled the scene.
She was later taken to the house of film director Lal in Thrikkakara by her driver.
According to the Police, Dileep was charged with paying an amount of 1.5 crores to his former driver Pulsar Suni to kidnap the heroine and click her nude pictures.
Dileep was earlier in Judicial custody for some days but handed over to Police for inquiring about the case.
