The Kerala High Court has postponed considering the bail plea of actor Dileep, in connection with the Kochi actress attack case, to Wednesday.

The HC bench heard the defence's arguments on Tuesday and will allow the prosecution to present their side tomorrow. The court has also asked the state government to file a statement in the case.

The defence argued that the remand report does not have proper information regarding several incidents and stated that the prosecution has not made the charges against the actor clear yet.

This was the fifth time that Dileep approached a court seeking bail, ever since his arrest on charges of conspiracy on July 10. The High Court and the Angamaly first class judicial magistrate's court had both rejected his bail plea twice before.

The defence, led by B Raman Pillai, submitted that Dileep has served over two-and-a-half months in jail and is now eligible for bail as there are no new developments linking the actor the investigation.

On Wednesday, the prosecution is expected to reiterate that the charges against Pulsar Suni are also applicable to Dileep and that the actor is capable of influencing the investigation adversely if he is let off on bail.

Meanwhile, the HC dismissed Kavya Madhavan's anticipatory bail plea on Monday after the police assured that she would not be arrested in the case. Director’s Nadirshah’s anticipatory bail plea has been postponed to October 4.
