Malayalam actor Dileep has been in custody in connection with the assault case on a fellow actress. The actor has since moved a bail petition multiple times but his pleas have been shot down by the court.

The actor’s lawyers has filed a bail petition again saying that their client is innocent and he is being implicated as many powerful people are lobbying against him. They also blamed the media for portraying him in a negative light.

The actor was taken into custody on July 10.
