The Kerala High Court on Tuesday denied bail to superstar Dileep in a case relating to the assault and abduction of a Malayalam actress.
This was the third time his bail plea has been rejected by the court.
A trial court at Angamaly had earlier denied Dileep's first bail plea. The actor then approached the high court, which also turned down his plea.
Dileep on August 10 submitted a fresh bail plea for the third time.
His judicial remand was earlier extended till August 22.
On July 14, Dileep was produced before the Angamaly Judicial First Class Magistrate Court where his police custody was extended.
Dileep on 11 July 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.
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.
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)
