Music director James Vasanthan, was arrested from his Palavakkam residence on Sunday evening for allegedly abusing his neighbour Radha Venuprasad (63).
He had shown indecent gestures and verbally abused her.
This had provoked Radha Venuprasad to lodge a complaint against James which led the police to arrest him under Section 4 of the Tamil Nadu Prevention of Women Harassment Act.
James Vasanthan has been having a long standing feud with the lady over a dispute. James Vasanthan had started constructing his new house adjoining Radha’s property.
He did his construction without proper protective cover resulting in dust falling in Radha’s property. She is a chronic asthmatic and suffers from pulmonary disease and fell sick.
Radha had earlier sent a legal notice to the music director who failed to use dust suppression meausres under building rules. After the latest flare up, James Vasanthan was remanded to judicial custody after being produced in the court.
