Shouts of 'Welcome to Central Jail' rent the air as actor Dileep, accused in the actress attack case of February 17, was taken to the Aluva sub jail. The popular actor, whose slap-stick numbers heralded a new crowd-pleasing genre, was taken to the jail after he was remanded in judicial custody by a magistrate.

It was decisive turnaround as the usual loud applauses gave way to booing and catcalls. Protests had broken out in various parts of the state, and he was burned in effigy. The actor himself got a taste of the crowd's ire as he was taken from Aluva police club to the magistrate court and then to the jail.

Hundreds of people had gathered outside the residence of the magistrate and they too raised slogans against the actor. Similar scenes were witnessed outside the Aluva sub jail. It was half-past six in the morning - the sun had barely risen and was hidden behind the monsoon clouds. But that didn't deter his detractors.
