The latest development in the Malayalam actress attack case is that Nadir Shah, a close friend of Dileep and well-known film director, had reached the Aluva Police Club, where he was about to be questioned. According to Mathrubhumi News, the actor’s blood pressure shot up just when the police interrogation began and a medical team examined the director. The interrogation has been postponed.
The cops had planned to take him for questioning earlier this week but as he had been admitted to a private hospital due to chest pain, they had to wait. The Kerala High Court had directed Nadir Shah to appear before the police.
All eyes are now back on the director Nadir Shah after the prime accused in the case Pulsar Suni revealed that he had been in touch with Nadir Shah and had accepted Rs 25,000 from him. Nadir Shah had begun his career as a mimicry artist with Dileep. They were close friends right from their ”mimicry days” and the Kerala police have questioned Nadir Shah to find out what he knows about the case.
Meanwhile, MLA P C George has triggered a controversy yet again. He has come out strongly in support of Dileep and Nadirshah. He slammed the Kerala police as ”mad” and told media persons that Manju Warrier, Dileep’s former wife, is responsible for the actor’s arrest. He stated that the truth will come out during the trial before the court. He added that it is well-known that Dileep had always been a supporter of the Congress party and had campaigned for several Congress candidates, another reason why CPM may be targeting the actor.
Speaking about Nadir Shah this morning, PC George MLA told Mathrubhumi TV news channel this morning, ”Nadir Shah is being framed by the cops. They are forcing him to speak against Dileep so that they can nail Dileep. This is what the situation is and till now Nadir Shah, a talented mimicry artist, and director, has spoken only the truth. The police are after him. He had come to me in tears, saying that he is speaking only the truth. There is no evidence till now against Dileep, which is why the police are trying to put pressure on Nadir Shah. Both are being wrongly targeted.”
Kerala police had interrogated Nadir Shah during the early stage of investigation and both he and Dileep had been questioned for over 13 hours at the Aluva Police Club.
