Actor Dileep has moved another plea before the Kerala High Court seeking to suspend further investigation into the  2017 sexual assault case whereby a popular actress was abducted and raped in a moving vehicle pursuant to a conspiracy.

Dileep is suspected to be the mastermind behind the said conspiracy and is undergoing trial before the CBI Special Judge. 

In the petition filed before the Court, he has alleged that furtherance of this 'sham investigation' infringes the right of a fair trial and added that it is an abuse of the process of law.  

Dileep had accused the case to be a 'deliberate and calculated attempt' of the prosecution to sabotage the trial before the Special CBI Court in the 2017 case wherein he is the 8th accused.

He has further pointed out that the impugned report was submitted by the Investigating Officer on 29th December 2021, the exact date when the Officer was scheduled to be examined as the last witness for the prosecution at the trial court. 

The accused has also contended that this report is unsustainable for the mere reason that it goes against the clear judicial pronouncements of the Supreme Court against investigating further if the charges are framed without obtaining formal permission of the Court.  

Dileep has filed an anticipatory bail application before the High Court in another case where has been booked for criminal conspiracy and the proceedings of the same are still progressing. 

Case Title: P. Gopalakrishnan alias Dileep v. State of Kerala & Anr
