Kerala actress abduction case: HC grants bail to Malayalam actor Dileep

The Kerala high court has granted bail to Malayalam actor Dileep in the Kerala actress abduction and molestation case. The courts earlier rejected four bail pleas by Dileep - twice each in the trial court and the High Court.

The actor, who landed in police custody on July 10, came out of the jail around 5.15 p.m. amidst much fanfare and celebrations by the jubilant supporters. He was asked to surrender his passport and issue a bond worth rupees one lakh.

Previously, two of his bail applications were turned down by the magistrate's court in Angamaly, and two petitions were later turned down by the Kerala High Court as well. He had been filing pleas for his bail and it was his fifth attempt.

When a section of the audience were planning to boycott the actor's Ramaleela, ardent fans of the Janapriyanayakan and cinema lovers reacted to it with the hashtags #Avanodoppam and #cinemayodoppam on social media.
