After a marathon 13-hour questioning in June, actor-director Nadirsha has now been asked to re-appear before the probe team in the Malayalam actress' kidnapping and molestation case, a Kerala Police officer said on Thursday, 7 September.

Nadirsha is currently admitted to a hospital. Once discharged, he would have to present himself before the police. He has moved the Kerala High Court seeking anticipatory bail, which will come up before the court tomorrow.

The abduction took place in February, when the actress was on her way from Thrissur to Kochi.

She was taken around in her vehicle forcefully for about two hours before being dumped near actor-director Lal's home, from where the police was informed.

Two of the key accused — Pulsar Suni and his accomplice involved in the actual abduction — were arrested a week after the incident.

The Kerla Police team while probing the conspiracy angle asked Shah and actor Dileep to appear before them.

Post the questioning on June 29, the two were let off but Dileep was arrested after another round of questioning on July 10.

Dileep has been languishing in a sub jail for over 2 months now. The actor has so far made three bail pleas, all of which were rejected. His first bail plea was made in a trial court in Angamaly and the next two in Kerala High Court.
