The Madhapur police in Hyderabad on Tuesday arrested Tollywood actor Krishna Reddy alias Samrat Reddy, after his wife, 29-year-old K Haritha Reddy, filed a case against him.
The duo married in 2015 but had been separated after the actor allegedly harassed Haritha for dowry.
In her complaint, the victim alleged that Samrat Reddy and his sister trespassed into Haritha’s house, and stole several belongings including CCTV cameras.
“Harshitha was staying at Samrat’s flat based on the agreement they had after they got estranged. On January 13, when she went on a vacation, he and his sister came to the flat and took away CCTV cameras and other valuables…the case was booked at Madhapur police station on January 25, a day after the court granted Samrat anticipatory bail in the dowry harassment case,” Madhapur Inspector R Kalinga Rao was quoted as saying.
ToI reported that Samrat had been booked under Section 448 (Housetrespass), 427 (Mischief causing damage) and 380 (Theft in dwelling house) of the IPC.
Samrat got bail from court on Wednesday.
