Malayalam actor Dileep on 3 November sought a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) enquiry into the Malayalam actress molestation and abduction case.

In a letter to the home secretary, the accused actor alleged that the state police chief Loknadh Behtra and ADGP B. Sandhya were behind the trap against him.

Dileep has been accused of hatching a plot with prime accused Pulsar Suni and his associates, to abduct and assault the Malayalam actress in a moving car.

On October 3, the actor was bailed out of jail after submitting a plea for the fifth time.

The actress, who has worked in Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu films, was kidnapped and molested in a moving car while she was on her way from Thrissur to Kochi on the night of 17 February this year.

Dileep was arrested on 10 July because of his alleged involvement in the molestation case.

On 11 July, Dileep was expelled from the primary membership of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) after being arrested.
