The bail plea of superstar Dileep, that was supposed to come up on Friday at the Kerala High Court in Kochi, has been postponed for Tuesday, 22 August.

The prosecution requested for the postponement as its lawyers were out of town attending the funeral of former advocate general MK Damodaran in Kannur.

On 10 August, Dileep had submitted a fresh bail plea for the third time after his judicial remand was extended till 22 August.

The actor, arrested on 10 July, has been lodged in the Aluva sub-jail.

Dileep's arrest came after police found evidence against him as the key conspirator in the abduction and molestation of a popular actress on February 17.

A trial court had earlier denied Dileep's first bail plea. The actor then approached the High Court, which was also rejected.

Dileep has employed a new counsel, senior advocate Ramanpillai, replacing advocate Ramkumar who appeared twice on his bail plea.

The police had earlier arrested the prime accused, Pulsar Suni, and his accomplices a week after the incident. However, a conspiracy angle cropped up much later that led to Dileep's arrest.
