The Kerala High Court on Tuesday granted permission to actor Dileep, the accused in the abduction and sexual assault case of a Malayalam actress, to visit Dubai for four days for opening a branch of his restaurant chain 'De Puttu'. He therefore asked for the release of his passport, which he had submitted to the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court in Angamaly as one of the conditions for securing bail. The prosecution however opposed Dileep's plea in court claiming that he may influence the witnesses.

The court granted Dileep's applications despite the objections raised by the prosecution, that Dileep was influencing witnesses pertaining to the case. It must be noted that the actor had been granted bail on October 3, almost 85 days after his arrest.

Now out on bail, Dileep submitted an application to the court on Friday stating that he wished to visit Dubai as he and his partners were launching a restaurant, reported The Times of India. This was before the court ordered his arrest on July 10 followed by the confiscation of his passport and a bail bond of Rs. 1 lakh to be paid along with two solvent sureties for the like amount. The court has granted 4 days to him to go overseas. Dileep had surrendered his passport as part of obtaining bail in the case.

The actor has sought a relaxation of his bail conditions to visit Dubai.

The actress, who has also worked in Tamil and Telugu films, was abducted and assaulted inside a moving auto on February 17 night.

The police have claimed that a conspiracy to abduct and assault the actress in a moving auto and film the act was hatched by Dileep.
