Thiruvananthapuram: The Supreme Court on Friday issued a stay in the trial of the controversial actress attack case. This stay comes after the Kerala government sought more time from the court to confirm whether the integral memory card should be construed as evidence or a document.
The state government had asked the court not to stay the trial as a consensus had been reached with the defendant on booking the accused, but the apex court issued a stay.
The SC on Thursday had asked the Kerala government to clarify whether a memory card would be deemed as evidence or a document while considering a petition by Mollywood actor Dileep seeking a copy of the images in the memory card.
