The CP said that the filmmaker was taken into custody when he was trying to visit Mumbai. Sinha mentioned that Naidu was held due to his alleged involvement in the tonsuring case of Srikanth.
During investigation, the CP said, Naidu made fake calls in the garb of retired IAS officer P V Ramesh to KGH superintendent and a few more doctors. Sinha further said that the former IAS officer had also lodged a complaint that someone was making fake calls mentioning his name. It is learnt that Naidu has made over 30 fake calls in this regard and also tried to destroy the SIM card.
