Renowned Malayalam screenwriter Iqbal Kuttipuram has come out in support of actor Dileep, who has been jailed on charges of conspiracy in the Kochi actress attack case.
Kuttipuram, who said he has been off Facebook for around a year, put up a post on Tuesday, criticising the way news channels and social media users have been treating Dileep.
Several persons from the film industry including veteran director Adoor Gopalakrishnan and prominent filmmaker G Suresh Kumar, had spoken out in support of actor Dileep in recent days.
Here's Iqbal's Facebook post's translation:
Dileep was arrested on charges of conspiracy in the case on July 10 and has been lodged in the Aluva sub-jail ever since. Both Angamaly court and Kerala High Court denied him bail last month
The actor's judicial custody was extended to another two weeks on Monday. His new counsel B Raman Pillai is expected to file a fresh bail plea in the High Court on Thursday.
