The prosecution filed a petition to the High Court on Wednesday, asking for three weeks more to investigate the case of sexual assault and abduction of a woman actor. Dileep, a Malayalam actor, is one of those alleged victims.

The High Court had last week ordered the Kochi trial court to send the memory card for an examination. This was in response to a petition by the prosecution. In light of Dileep’s claim that he had seen the video of the attack, the police wanted to examine the memories.

The forensic lab was directed to determine if any folders or files were accessed in the memory cards after February 18, 2017, one day after the actor had been abducted and attacked, and whether the hash values of the video files containing the sexual assault on the victims has changed.

In its report to the investigating agency the lab stated that the memory card had been used by Vivo phones on July 19, 2021. There, telegram, WhatsApp, and Instagram were all installed.

The report also stated that the memory cards were connected again to computers on January 9th, 2018 and another mobile device on December 13th, 2018. Eight files were viewed after the last access occurred at 10:59 pm. According to the report, this is due to the creation of system folders and the use of the memory card on mobile phones or computers.

Although the High Court allowed the examination of the card, it observed last week, that at this stage of proceedings, the High Court could not decide or consider whether the change in the hash value was relevant. “The hash value of an electronic document is claimed to be like a fingerprint, ensuring the authenticity of a document. There could be many reasons why the hash value changes. The proceedings are still in its initial stages and it cannot be determined or assessed whether the change in hash values is relevant. However, the Court cannot foresee whether or not the prosecution may be called upon to explain the reason for the change in the hash value,” the High Court had satated.
