Kochi: Sundays mean no work in the jail. Inmates of the Aluva sub jail had more reasons to celebrate. They were allowed to watch Mammootty’s latest movie, The Great Father, on television. One of them, however, gave the star a miss.
Actor Dileep, who returned to the jail on Saturday evening after three days in police custody, kept to his cell while the other prisoners were glued to the TV placed on the corridor near his cell. He only ventured out to bathe and eat.
Dileep slept or read through the day. He did not entertain the prisoners who wanted to chat him up. Jail superintendent P P Baburaj visited the celebrity inmate but the actor did not raise any special request to him or the other officials.
He just said he was innocent in the case and he had been framed.
Dileep was arrested last Monday for plotting an attack on a fellow actress in February. His bail petition was rejected by a magistrate at Angamaly on Saturday. The actor’s counsel is likely to move the High Court on Monday.
Dileep shares the cell with a murder accused from Odisha and three others. He took a bath on Sunday morning and ate chappati and lentils for breakfast. He ate vegetarian meals for lunch and dinner.
