Kochi: Actor Dileep appeared in the Ernakulam Principal Sessions Court on Wednesday where the trial proceedings in the sensational actress attack case began. The Court had earlier issued summons to all the accused, including eighth accused Dileep, who reached the court for the hearing in the morning.
The case which began from the Angamaly Magistrate court was transferred to the Sessions court. The actress wanted the court to hold the proceedings in-camera and also sought a woman judge. The Court has asked all of them to appear before it on Wednesday.
In his plea filed in the high court last week, Dileep said he was denied the rights of a defendant by a trial court in Angamaly and that the trial should be halted until he gets access a copy of digital evidence of the alleged attack on the actress.
The Kerala high court on March 12 observed that there was no reason to delay trial in the case.
The high court posted the case for hearing on March 21.
