Kochi: The police are unlikely to accept actor Dileep’s offer to submit himself to a lie-detector test to prove his innocence in a case of attack on an actress on a highway near Kochi in February. The investigators are hopeful of cracking the case through other scientific methods.
Dileep took to social media to express his anguish at the reports pointing fingers at him.
The police, however, have decided to wait since nobody had raised a complaint against the actor.
Dileep’s name was not mentioned by the witnesses or accused in the first round of investigation. The main accused, ‘Pulsar’ Suni dragged the actor’s name only after the police had submitted a charge sheet in the case.
The police have to find the motive behind the latest revelations and substantiate it with scientific evidence before opting for any move against Dileep.
The police do not decide on a lie-detector test as per the demands of the accused or witnesses in any case. The test is only resorted to as a confirmation of other evidences.
Meanwhile, Suresh Gopi MP gave a thumbs-up to the police team investigating the case.
The actor-turned-politician said at Muthalamada in Palakkad that the investigation was in the right direction, dismissing social media reports as mere speculation.
He called for restraint from social media and media while commenting on the case.
