dileep

KOCHI: The trial court has dismissed the demand of the prosecution to send the memory card, which is crucial evidence in the case of attacking the actress, for forensic examination. The Ernakulam Special Additional Sessions Court rejected the petition filed by the prosecution on April 4 seeking an examination of the card to check whether the footage had been leaked from the memory card which is in court's custody. On May 9, the court rejected the application, citing that a forensic expert's statement was recorded after checking the memory card.

Assistant Public Prosecutor KB Sunil Kumar told the court yesterday that he was not aware of such a verdict. The court explained that a copy of the verdict has been sent to the Nedumbassery police station house officer in charge of the case and this is because the verdict wasn't received by the prosecution. The court also expressed dissatisfaction that the prosecution did not accept the verdict. Survivor had filed a petition in the High Court yesterday alleging that the government was sabotaging reinvestigation into the case, adding that the trial court had not considered the need to send the memory card for examination.

Dileep's bail: Petition postponed

The court adjourned till May 31 the petition filed by the prosecution seeking cancellation of Dileep's bail on charges of trying to influence witnesses in the case and destroy evidence. The court examined the submission of audio recordings of Dileep, brother Anoop and brother-in-law TN Suraj as prosecution evidence in the case.
