The Supreme Court on Friday, 29 November, held that Malayalam actor Dileep was not entitled to receive a copy of the memory card allegedly containing the visuals of the sexual crimes committed on a Kerala actress in February 2017.

A bench comprising Justices AM Khanwilkar and Dinesh Maheswari however has allowed him to access and inspect the video subject to conditions securing the privacy of the actress.

The SC thus upheld the Kerala High Court's judgment which had refused Dileep's plea.

The actor is accused as the conspirator of the crime, which was allegedly committed in a moving vehicle in the suburbs of Kochi in February 2017.
