Superintendent of Police AV George told reporters: "I can confirm that she was questioned yesterday (Tuesday). I cannot provide any more information." Kavya Madhavan was reportedly questioned for over six hours at the ancestral home of Dileep. She reportedly broke down several times.

It was on 17 February that the actress was abducted and harassed in a moving vehicle for around two hours in Kochi. The police had earlier arrested the prime accused, Pulsar Suni, and his accomplices.

On 1 July, Kavya Madhavan's office for her e-commerce venture Laksyah was raided by the police in connection to this case. It was said that Suni had previously visited the office twice and had kept a memory card containing pictures of the actress' assault there.

The police also alleged in a report to the court that Dileep wanted 'revenge' from the Malayalam actress in question, as he held her responsible for the failure of his first marriage to Manju Warrier.

On Monday the Kerala High Court refused to give bail to Dileep. On Tuesday his judicial remand was extended till 8 August. He faces charges of criminal conspiracy; in response, he has plead innocence and claimed that he is being framed. On the other hand, the prosecution has said that it has strong evidence against the actor.

Dileep was first tagged in this case when his name appeared in letters written by Pulsar Suni's former cellmate demanding that he pay Rs 1.5 crore so that Suni would not name him in the case.
