Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala High Court will consider the bail plea of Actor Dileep on August 22 in connection with the assault and abduction of a Malayalam actress.

The Kerala Angamali magisterial court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of actor Dileep till August 22.

On July 14, Dileep was produced before the Angamaly Judicial First Class Magistrate Court where his police custody was extended.
