KOCHI: The High Court has directed to hand over the copy of statements collected by the Principal District Sessions Judge of Ernakulam to the victim on the complaint of misuse of the memory card containing the footage of the actress being assaulted. Justice K Babu's directive was without considering the objection of the accused actor Dileep's lawyer. On May 30, a detailed hearing will be held on the sub-petition seeking a special police team to investigate under the supervision of the High Court about the illegal checking of the memory card.

In the sub-petition, it has been alleged that the investigation as directed by the High Court was not conducted properly and the investigation report was helpful to the defendant. Supreme Court lawyer Gaurav Aggarwal, who appeared for the victim, argued that the sub-petition was filed as a continuation of the earlier petition seeking an investigation. At the same time, Advocate Philip T Varghese, who appeared for Dileep, said that the information in the investigation report of the Sessions Judge has been disseminated through the media and it is making the justice system worse.

According to the investigation report, Magistrate Leena Rasheed of Angamaly Court at 11:56 pm on January 1, 2018, Mahesh Mohan, Bench Clerk of Ernakulam Sessions Court on December 13, 2018, and Shirasthadhaar Tajuddin of Trial Court during the day on July 19, 2021 examined the footage on the memory card. The report also states that only Tajuddin's action is illegal.
