Bengaluru [India], Sep 2 (ANI): Actor Dileep, accused in Malayam actress abduction and assault case, was on Saturday granted permission to attend his father's death anniversary rituals, which is due on September 6.

The actor had filed an application before the judicial magistrate court at Angamaly seeking permission to attend his father's death anniversary rituals.

The court, however, extended his judicial custody until September 16.

The Kerala High Court earlier on August 29 denied bail to Dileep.

A trial court at Angamaly had earlier denied Dileep's bail plea. The actor then approached the high court, which also turned down his plea.

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

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

Dileep 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.

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