A 28-year-old man, who made threatening calls to actor Radha by pretending to be a history sheeter from Puzhal prison, has been arrested.
The accused, Anthony Raj, was working as a driver for Munivel, with who the actor was in a relationship.
On August 21, Radha had registered a complaint against the history sheeter Kunrathur Vairam, who was lodged at the Puzhal prison. However, Vairamâ€™s wife denied the allegations and claimed that it was not his voice in the recording, according to The Times of India.
Meanwhile, the police carried out a raid in nine central prisons and found six mobile phones. However, no phone was found from Vairam.
The police traced the phone number from which the actor received calls and found that it belonged to Anthony Raj. The investigating officer told TOI that they were able to trace the phone as it remained active.
The investigations revealed that Anthony Raj wanted to help Munivelâ€™s wife as she was upset that her husband was having a relationship with the actor. Police claim that he acted on his own and decided to threaten actor Radha to stay away from Munivel.
The actor alleged that it was Munivelâ€™s wife who made the threatening call but police denied the claim, as reported by Times of India.
