Popular producer Ashok Vallabhaneni, who produced Nithya Menon-Nani starrer Sega and Erra Gulabeelu, the Telugu version of the Tamil movie Nadunisi Naaygal, was arrested by the police last week on Friday night along with nine others for illegally grabbing two flats in a newly constructed building in Jai Prakash Nagar.
The owner of the building, Balaji Kumar, said that he had sold the two flats to someone else. 'On Friday morning, 10 persons, along with Ashok, came to my flat, broke the doors and windows and threatened that they would kill me if I did not hand over the flats to them. When I refused, they said they will hurt me and my family, so I fled from the spot and later filed a complaint with the police' he added.
After receiving the complaint, the police paid a surprise visit at the spot and found rowdy elements occupying both flats. They failed to produce necessary documents when demanded. The police arrested them and during questioning, they revealed that they were hired by producer Ashok Vallabhaneni and his associate Giri, the police officials said.
