The prosecution requested for the postponement as its lawyers were out of town attending the funeral of former Advocate General MK Damodaran at Kannur.

Dileep on August 10 submitted a fresh bail plea for the third time. His judicial remand had been extended till August 22 in a case involving the abduction and molestation of a popular actress in February.

The actor, arrested on July 10, is since then lodged in the Aluva sub-jail. Dileep's arrest came after police found evidence against him as the abduction's key conspirator. The actress was abducted and molested while travelling from Thrissur to Kochi on 17 February.

A trial court had earlier denied Dileep's first bail plea. The actor then approached the high court, which also turned down his plea. Dileep has employed a new counsel, replacing the previous one 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.
