Sandalwood actor Vinod Alva has been arrested by Puttur police on Monday after a complaint was filed accusing the actor of planning a murder.
The Hindu reported that Sachhidananda, a resident of Paduvannoor village near Eshwarmangala in Puttur taluk, filed the complaint accusing the actor for conspiring to murder him. A case of criminal conspiracy and attempt to murder has been registered at Puttur police station.
On Sunday, Sachidananda’s bike was hit by a jeep while he was on his way to the dairy shop at Ishwaramangala.
According to his complaint the jeep was driven by a man named Udaya Chikkittaya, who is an associate of Alva, reported Daijiworld.
Following the accident, a fear-struck Sachidananda told in this complaint that bike and jeep accident was intentional as he had gone to court against Vinod Alva.
Sachidananda reportedly managed the financial affairs of Vinod Alva and also had power of attorney issued by Alva. But this was all until March 7, 2015, when he went to court demanding compensation for the work he had rendered.
Bangalore Mirror quoted Superintendent of Police Sharanappa S.D. saying, “We have taken Vinod Alva into custody and an inquiry is presently on. We are awaiting a few more inputs and clarity with regard to the complaint. Ryshyanth C B, assistant superintendent of police, Puttur subdivision is investigating the case.”
