“How­ever, they took in writ­ing from him that he was mis­be­hav­ing with them,” said the DSP.

“The two women also black­mailed their land­lord, Vi­jay Ku­mar, in Su­nam and wanted ex­emp­tion from rent. They threat­ened to im­pli­cate him in a false case of rape. Act­ing on these two com­plaints, we have made the ar­rests,” said Jeji.
