Mumbai, Aug 26 (UNI) Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra's ex-secretary Prakash Jaju was arrested by the city crime branch from Mau in Madhya Pradesh today for allegedly threatening her family members and making 'inappropriate' remarks against them.
A crime branch officer said Jaju was arrested from Mau near Indore and would be produced in a court here tomorrow for remand.
Priyanka's father Ashok Chopra had filed the First Information Report (FIR) against Jaju at Oshiwara Police station earlier, stating that Jaju was making false allegation against his daughter and threatening the family members.
Priyanka's family also used to get anonymous threatening calls from landlines.
Earlier, a team of Mumbai police that went to raid Jaju's residence in Madhya Pradesh, returned ''empty handed'' after finding the house locked.
Jaju had also filed a criminal complaint in Indore against Priyanka Chopra and her father Ashok Chopra for allegedly threatening him through underworld don Chota Shakeel in order to pressurise him to stop demanding his dues from the actress.
According to Jaju, the film actress owes him a huge amount and is refusing to pay his dues, instead he is being intimidated.
