Actor Dileep with wife Kavya Madhavan

The Crime Branch of Kerala Police on Friday (April 9) served notice to Malayalam actress Kavya Madhavan to appear for interrogation on Monday in the 2017 actress assault case. Kavya is the wife of Malayalam actor Dileep who is the eighth accused in this case.

Recently, Crime Branch interrogated Dileep for two consecutive days. He was accused of conspiring with others to murder police officials who had been investigating the actor assault case. Earlier, the Kerala High Court directed the probe team to conclude the investigation into the case by April 15. 

Late last year, his former friend and director Balachandrakumar had come out in the open against him, disclosing that Dileep was conspiring to eliminate police officials investigating the 2017 actress abduction case in which he is presently out on bail. However, the actor's counsel argued that the fresh disclosures were cooked up by the prosecution to book the actor and to fabricate evidence against him after the probe agency failed to find any concrete evidence.
