Shankaracharya: AP police want to arrest Usha
December 02, 2004 17:37 IST
The Andhra Pradesh police on Thursday sought the help of their Tamil Nadu counterparts to arrest Usha, whose name has been linked with Kanchi Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati, in connection with a bank cheating case in Srikalahasti, about 40 km from Tirupati.
The Shankaracharya is currently under arrest in connection with a murder case.
Srikalahasti Rural Circle Inspector B Srinivasan said Usha and her husband R L Narayanan took a loan of Rs 30 lakh from the State Bank of India's Srikalahasti branch in 1997 for setting up a cement brick factory.
The bank in 2001 lodged a complaint with the local police alleging that Usha and her husband were not repaying the loan.
Narayanan was arrested and later let off on bail. Usha, however, remained elusive, though a non-bailable warrant was issued by a Srikalahasti court on November 30 last year against her.
"We will send our police team to arrest Usha only after getting a green signal from the Tamil Nadu police," Srinivasan said.
