The Chennai Police on Tuesday arrested DMK MP and actor JK Ritheesh on a cheating case. The actor was also accused of forgery.

The police say Ritheesh received Rs. 20 crore from a Chennai based hotelier to part with his land near Sriperumbudur, but did not hand over the land.

Ritheesh claims it is a false case and that he would face the case legally.

Ritheesh was arrested last year by the Kancheepuram district police on land grab charges.
