Popular music director James Vasanthan has been arrested for his alleged derogatory remarks against his neighbour Radha Venuprasad, a 64 year old.
Radha, a resident of Palavakkam, has submitted a case against James Vasanthan with Neelankarai police station accusing him of abusing her in foul language.
James Vasanthan and Radha are neighbours living in adjacent plots at VGP Golden Seaview, Palavakkam.
Reportedly the trouble started, when the musician had started the construction of his house couple of years back in an adjacent plot. But Radha, a Asthma patient had breathing problems because of the dust rising from the construction site, the neighbours talks ended in verbal attack from both sides. Radha filed a complaint in May 2011 of verbal abuse and attacking her with a flower pot. However the case is pending in court.
Against this backdrop, now Radha has filed a fresh complaint against him for abusing her with offensive swear words on Saturday morning and urged the police men to take immediate action.
On her complaint, the Neelankarai police have charged James Vasanthan under three acts, including Women Harassment Act.
When contacted, James Vasanthan denied all the allegations made against him. “It was Radha who abused me on Saturday morning, now I am amused how she could go on to make to complaint against me . Though I have a good reputation in the society, I am being treated like a terrorist.Over 50 policemen arrived at my house to arrest me, they even manhandled me and my wife. I know the law will take its course. My conscience is clear. I trust in God above all.”, he said.
