The prosecution has argued against giving bail for the actor at this point of time could be crucial as he may try to influence those involved in the case. It was also alleged that Dileep had hatched a conspiracy to take revenge on the victim by abducting her and taking nude photographs of her.

The accused is influential and is likely to tamper with the evidence if bail is granted at this stage, the court said.

Dileep, apart from being a noted actor, is also the owner of a theatre. Police could not find anything to connect Dileep to the crime despite questioning him for many hours. The mobile phone and the real memory card containing the clippings of the actress have not been found so far.

Dileep was arrested on July 10. The lower court had rejected the argument of the actor's counsel that there was no material evidence to implicate him and that the whole case against him was built on the basis of statement of main accused and "criminal" Sunil Kumar aka Pulsar Suni. "Hence, the possibility of the petitioner influencing or threatening the several witnesses can not be ruled out", the HC order said. There is cogent, clinging, direct, indirect, circumstantial, and scientific evidence to establish that Dileep had conspired with Suni.

On the long 15th he drained a huge eagle putt across the green to recapture the lead, and another birdie on 16 took him two clear. For a brief period Kuchar actually moved into the lead when Spieth dropped a shot after going way of course on the 13th hole.

Now there are two options for Dileep.

Local reports have said that after the Kerala HC denied Dileep bail, the actor seemed dejected as his lawyers had expressed confidence in getting a ruling in his favour. The arrest is only meant to humiliate Dileep and spoil his career.

"The puramboke land encroached on by Dileep should be reclaimed as excess land and utilised for LIFE Mission, the government's housing project for the poor", he said in the petition. Dileep and the complainant openly quarrelled about this at a rehearsal programme in Kochi and this was confirmed by many witnesses from the film world.
