Tollywood comedian Prudhviraj's wife lodged a complaint with the Banjara Hills police alleging that the actor was subjecting her to domestic harassment. On September 21, K Kavitha, 30, told the police that she was duped and harassed by her husband Prudhviraj. Talking of how things transpired, Kavitha said she met Prudhviraj through a common friend in 2010 after divorcing her first husband.
Subsequently, she married the actor and they started living in a house on Road Number 10, Banjara Hills. "Recently, Prudhviraj started an affair with a woman, Padma, and threw me out of the house after taking Rs 2 lakh cash and gold from me," Kavitha alleged in her complaint.
Based on the complaint, police registered a case against the actor under Sections 420 (cheating) and 498-A (subjecting a married woman to cruelty) of the IPC on September 21. Police were gathering evidence in the case but not made any arrests.
