The Central Crime Branch sleuths let go Kannada film actress Radhika Kumaraswamy after questioning her for four hours for allegedly receiving Rs 75 lakh from a man who was arrested for duping a realtor. The actress appeared before the CCB sleuths at 11 am and was questioned till 3 pm, the CCB sources said.
In the meantime, the swindler Yuvaraj, who had duped the realtor and had allegedly transferred the money into Radhika’s account was also brought to the CCB office for questioning the actress face-to-face. Before entering the CCB office, Yuvaraj said on Friday he knew Radhika’s family for almost 18 years.
After coming out she said she answered all the questions posed by the police and she was ready to once again come if summoned.”There is no problem at all. If they call me again, I will come back,” Radhika told reporters after coming out. To a question, the actress said she cannot divulge everything that was asked to her during the interrogation.
Responding to a few media houses, she said she has never received Rs 1.25 crore as has been reported by a few television channels.She also clarified that she did not abscond as was shown in some news channels.
Later, the CCB issued a statement, “Detailed inquiry was done by the investigating officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Nagaraj. Further investigation will be based on her statement.” Radhika had told reporters on Wednesday that she had received Rs 15 lakh from Yuvaraj, who identified himself with a right wing party.
Radhika said she received the money from Yuvaraj to make a period film. She, however, expressed ignorance about the remaining Rs 60 lakh deposited in her account. The CCB had arrested Yuvaraj in December following a complaint by a realtor who alleged that he was duped to the tune of Rs 10 crore with the promise of an election ticket. The raid on his residence led to the recovery of a cash of Rs 26 lakh and cheques for Rs 91 crore.
