A trial court on Monday, 6 January, framed charges against Malayalam actor Dileep and nine other accused in the case of abducting and sexually assaulting a female actor in February 2017. All 10 accused were present at the additional special sessions court in Ernakulam when the charges were framed against them. All of them have denied the charges.

According to the top lawyer associated with the case, accused number 7, Charly Thomas, has only been charged under section 212 for harbouring or giving shelter to the main accused Pulsar Suni, in Coimbatore after the crime. Accused nine and 10 — Sanil Kumar and Vishnu — who confessed they acted on specific instructions of Suni, have been charged under sections 120 A (criminal conspiracy) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.
