A man accused in two cases was arrested on charge of producing fake complainants with fabricated documents before the court to create a scene of compromise and get the cases closed, here on Monday.

According to II Town police, Adari Ravi Kumar is facing trials in two cases in ADM court (III). He allegedly hatched a conspiracy to close the cases with the help of two men at Lok Adalat on February 8.
