The prosecution informed that Dileep offered Pulsar Suni Rs 1.50 crore for carrying out the abduction, and in case he gets caught in the act by the police, the compensation would be doubled.

The actress was abducted while on her way by road from Thrissur to Kochi.

The High Court was hearing Dileep's bail plea for the third time (fifth time overall) since his arrest on 10 July in the case. The court posted the verdict on this for a later date.

The prosecution also got permission from the court to take a statement before a magistrate from popular singer, TV and film artiste Rimy Tomy along with three others.

Meanwhile, Dileep's counsel told the court that they are prepared to satisfy any condition for the bail.

Dileep was arrested on 10 July for alleged involvement in the conspiracy behind the kidnapping of the actress. She was taken around in the vehicle for about two hours and allegedly molested before being dumped near actor-director Lal's home.
