Popular Telugu actor Dileep has been put behind bars for sexually assaulting and kidnapping a renowned Malyalam actress. While several news following the arrest of the actor is making huge headlines, the South Indian actress herself has come to the forefront to speak on the controversial matter. She said that Dileep’s arrest was extremely shocking for her. She also pointed out that the truth needs to come out in public at the earliest.
"He (Dileep) says that he has been framed in the case. The need of the hour is that the truth should come out. If he is innocent, it should come out quickly and if not, even then the truth should come out fast. All are equal before law," she said.
The actress added that she is coming out through a statement as she is not in the right frame of mind to come before TV channels and speak.
Actor Dileep, who uses just one name, was arrested on Monday in connection with the abduction and molestation of the actress in February and was sent to two days police custody on Tuesday by a lower court near here.His bail application is coming up on Friday.
The actress said that the two shared a cordial relationship but for some reason it got strained. "There are reports that I had real estate dealings with him (Dileep), but the truth is that there has been no such deals with him at all. I did not say this before, because such a thing was never heard and now that it's being said so I am clarifying it," added the actress.
She also clarified that she does not have a Facebook page or a Twitter handle and anything on these social networking platforms by her name is false.
"My sincere wish is no innocent person should be punished and none who has committed a crime should be allowed to escape," she added.
Famous South actress, who has worked in many Tamil and Telugu films, was allegedly molested inside her car for two hours while travelling from Thrissur to Kochi by road in her car.
