The 13-hour police questioning ended well past midnight, into the wee hours of Thursday, The News Minute reported.
Speaking to the media after the questioning, a visibly tired Dileep told the media that he was confident that he will come out clean. “I have given a detailed statement based on the complaint I filed. We also spoke in detail about the crime itself,” he said.
“Police is investigating the case in a proper manner. It is my requirement too that the truth comes out,” he told reporters as he was being escorted to his car by the police.
When a reporter asked Dileep if this was an interrogation, he said, “As I told you, the police took my detailed statement on the complaint I filed. We discussed every aspect related to the case.”
Nadirshah did not speak to the media.
Dileep and Nadirshah were questioned at the Police Club, Aluva. The questioning began around 12.30 pm on Wednesday and ended around 1.30 am on Thursday.
Actor Siddique and Nadirshah’s brother Samad also reached the police club, but the investigating team denied them permission to meet the actor and the filmmaker. Samad was called inside the club after the questioning was over, according to media reports.
“At this stage, it is not possible to give a clean chit to anyone, we will question Dileep again if needed,” Officer George, Superintendent of Police said.
