Hyderabad: Jubilee Hills police invoked the Goonda Act against Tollywood small time actor Uday Kiran.
The actor was earlier booked in various cases with charges including attempt to murder and misbehaving with a woman. Uday Kiran, who is already in prison in connection with an attempt to murder case, will have to remain in jail for one additional year with the new Act invoked against him.
According to police officials, there are as many as nine criminal cases against Uday Kiran in Jubilee Hills police station and town police station in Kakinada. “There are cases of bodily offences, threatening and crime against a woman, against him. So, we invoked PD Act against him as per the law,” said S. Venkat Reddy, Inspector of Jubilee Hills police station.
Police usually book PD Act against history sheeter to keep them inside prison to maintain law and order in the city. Jubilee Hills police had arrested him last month after he attacked a hotel staff. He damaged the property in the same hotel. Cops had booked him for attempt to murder and sent him to prison, where he is still remaining. Earlier, he had misbehaved with a woman and cops had arrested him then.
