The Angamaly Magistrate court posted the plea to be heard on Saturday.
Following his arrest on July 10 for his involvement in the conspiracy that led to the abduction and molestation of a Malayalam actress in February, Dileep has been lodged in the Aluva sub-jail.
Police had arrested the prime accused Pulsar Suni and his accomplices a week after the incident. However, a conspiracy angle cropped up much later that led to Dileep's arrest.
