The Bengaluru police have brought Tamil comedy actor S Srinivasan, popularly known as Powerstar Srinivasan, to Bengaluru after getting a body warrant from a Delhi Court in connection with a cheating case filed against him.
Recently, Delhi police had arrested Srinivasan for allegedly cheating a businessman in New Delhi to the tune of Rs 10 crore by promising him to get Rs 1,000 crore as loan.
He was lodged in Tihar jail and Bengaluru police took him into their custody on Tuesday. He was remanded in judicial custody after being produced before the 4th Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court.
“Srinivasan is also wanted by the Bengaluru police. He had allegedly cheated businessman Masroor Alam and his brother Sajjad Wahab to the tune of ₹ 1 crore after promising them a loan of ₹30 crore,” sources said.
Srinivasan, who is an acupuncturist, has acted in around 12 Tamil films and has made guest appearances in a few films. Police sources said a major chunk of money that he had borrowed, was invested in film production.
