Aluva (Kerala) [India], October 3 (ANI): Actor Dileep was released from Aluva Jail on Tuesday, as thousands of people gather outside in support.

The Kerala High Court granted bail to Malayalam Actor Dileep in connection with molestation and abduction case of a South Indian film actress.

This was the fifth time when Dileep had moved a court seeking bail.

Earlier Dileep's bail plea was rejected twice by the Kerala High Court and Angamaly magistrate court.

Dileep has been accused of hatching a plot to abduct and assault the Malayalam actress in a moving car through 'prime accused' Pulsar Suni and his associates.

The actress, who has worked in Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu films, was kidnapped and molested in a moving car while she was on her way from Thrissur to Kochi on the night of February 17 this year.

Dileep was arrested on July 10 because of his alleged involvement in the molestation case.

On July 11, Dileep was expelled from the primary membership of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) after being arrested. (ANI)
