During an interaction with a few TV channels, Dileep’s brother Anoop has vehemently defended his brother. According to him, "the public shouldn’t become donkeys in the end. It's a conspiracy, my brother will make a comeback".
“My effort is to prove his innocence. All that has been said are charges. Nothing has been proved. It’s not true. This is a conspiracy that is more well scripted than a thriller.He is my elder brother. He will never do such a thing. Why should he do such a foolishness?” asks Anoop.
He denied that there are land deals involved as has been reported. “There are no land deals as we hear about. When the truth comes out.”
Anoop says about his brother with confidence, “He is innocent. He will bounce back.”
