Nutan Naidu's wife Priya Madhuri has been held for allegedly assaulting a Dalit man named K Srikanth at her residence in Vizag's Pendurthi, on Friday night. The Bigg Boss-2 celeb's wife and her staff members have been held for harassing the youngster for about four hours on the suspicion that he had stolen her mobile phone.
CCTV footage clearly shows that Priya Madhuri presided over the assault of the man in the presence of her employees. "After assaulting me, a barber was called in to get my head tonsured," Srikanth added.
The Vizag police have booked Priya and seven others under IPC sections 307 (attempt to murder), among others. They have been charged with cases for wrongfully confining the man, criminally intimidating him and causing hurt. Relevant sections of the SC/ST Act have also been invoked.
