Bengaluru: The Ashoknagar police from here have arrested one Prashant (35) from Jayanagar, who claims to be a civil contractor, for misbehaving with an up-and-coming screen star in a pub.
The female star, Heera (name changed). had arranged a get-together for her friends in a private hotel on Residency Road. Prashant too had come there with his friends.
While she kept dancing on the pub floor, he and his friends are said to have behaved with her in an abusive and inappropriate manner, according to a complaint filed by her against him.
The police arrested Prashant since his was the only name mentioned in her complaint. They made enquiries with the management and the staff of the pub to extract more names. The police said that they would act against others as well.
Police investigations have revealed that Prashant was the main accused in the murder of BEML Krishnappa in 2012 and have even gone to jail on that charge.
