Hyderabad: The police in Alwal has booked a case against Tamil actress Vanitha Vijaykumar for ‘kidnapping’ her own daughter. This followed a complaint from her husba-nd Anandraj, who claimed that the court had given him the custody of the eight-year-old child.
Though Vanitha, daughter of veteran actor Vijayku-mar and late actress Manj-ula Vijayakumar, did not literally kidnap the girl, the police booked the case thus, as she refused to hand over the child even after the deadline permitted by court has crossed.
“In the first week of April, Vanitha had taken her daughter Jainitha to her home in Chennai with the consent of her ex-husband. As per their agreement, she was to return the child last week. But she did not keep her word. She also did not respond to the calls of Anandraj, who then lodged a complaint with us,” said T. Anand Reddy, Inspector of Police from Alwal.
Vanitha and Anand Kumar, a businessman, had got married 10 years ago. In 2012, they got separated. Vanitha reportedly got re-married to a dance master from Tamil industry.
During the argument, a local court gave full custody of the child to Anand Kumar, who lives in Alwal. Occasionally, Vanith used to come and visit her daughter....
