Kochi (Kerala) [India], Sep 16 (ANI): The Ankamali Magistrate Court will hear the bail plea filed by Malayalam film actress Kavya Madhavan, wife of actor Dileep, on September 18.

Kavya filed the anticipatory bail plea of her husband before the court on Saturday. Meanwhile, the remand period of actor Dileep has been extended till September 28.

The move comes on the back of reports that the actress is to be arrested by detectives investigating the abduction and molestation of a leading Malayalam actress earlier this year.

Dileep's bail plea has been rejected thrice by the court.

Dileep on July 11 was expelled from the primary membership of Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) after being arrested.

He was also sent to 14-day judicial custody.

He was slapped with conspiracy charges owing to the abduction and assault of a popular Malayalam actress earlier in February. Later that day, he was arrested.

Earlier, the two main accused in the case, Sunil Kumar and Vigeesh, were brought to Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu for evidence collection.

The incident reportedly took place when the actress was returning from a shoot. (ANI)
