Actor Dileep has been under arrest in connection with the sexual assault case involving a Malayalam actress. The actor has been in jail for the past 71 days after his arrest in July.

The court has now turned down his bail plea for the fourth time. Prosecution argued that Dileep may use his influence to tamper evidence and coerce witness if given bail.

Meanwhile as a precautionary measure Dileep’s wife Kavya Madhavan applied for anticipatory bail as she feared that the law enforcers may implicate her in the crime also.
