Actor Baburaj arrested in resort related cheating case

Thodupuzha: Police on Saturday arrested actor Baburaj in connection with a cheating case. The case pertains to dealings in the resort leased by the actor.

Baburaj owns a resort in Kallara, Kottayam. The property reportedly is facing revenue procedures. However, he apparently leased the property for Rs 40 lakh to Kothamangalam native Arun, without informing him of the issue.

Arun came to know about the revenue procedures only when he was preparing some documents for the property. Over that, he asked Baburaj to return the money, but the actor allegedly turned down on it.

Meanwhile, the arrest was recorded after the actor appeared before the Adimali police in the wake of a directive from the Kerala High Court.

Following the arrest, Baburaj was subjected to a medical examination. He will be produced before the magistrate and released on bail.

The court earlier had granted anticipatory bail to Baburaj and asked him to appear before the police for questioning.
