However, the police said that the information conveyed through WhatsApp can not be considered as a complaint and that this fact will be summited as an affidavit in the court. Earlier, the police maintained that Dileep had hidden from police the facts about Suni's call.

The actor's counsel also pointed out that the production and post-production work of four Malayalam films were interrupted due to his arrest, creating a financial crisis of Rs 50 crore in the Malayalam film industry. In his bail application, Dileep pointed out that he had sent a WhatsApp message to State Police Chief Loknath Behra on the same day when Suni contacted him over phone. "The police did only that", Behera said, adding that he did not want to elaborate. The arrest and the reports that Dileep masterminded the attack left the film fraternity in shock and disbelief.

The claims were part of the most recent unsuccessful bail application the Malayalam superstar moved in court.

In his petition Dileep had also challenged the police version that he and Suni conspired to attack the actress in a hotel in Kochi during the rehearsal of a star night organized by the Association of Malayalam Movie Artistes (AMMA) in 2013.

Even Suni, the prime accused in the case, first confided in his cellmate and then told investigators that it was Dileep who had ordered the commission of the crime. They managed to influence the media, a section of police officials and political leaders, it is alleged.

Dileep has also levelled some serious charges against filmmaker VA Shrikumar Menon and Liberty Basheer, and investigating official ADGP Sandhya.
