Duniya Vijay’s first wife on the run

High drama prevailed outside the house of actor Duniya Vijay’s first wife, Nagarathna, in Katriguppe on Sunday morning when the police went there to arrest her on the charge of assault on Vijay’s second wife, Keerthi Gowda.

Monica, elder daughter of Nagarathna, refused to open the door and cooperate with the investigation. Subsequently, she was brought to the station. However, Nagarathna managed to escape from the house. The Girinagar police said efforts were on to trace her.

CCTV footage from Vijay’s house, where he lives with his second wife, showed Nagarathna hitting Keerthi. The footage was recorded on September 24, when Vijay was arrested for an alleged assault on a gym instructor.

After assaulting Keerthi, Nagarathna approached the Girinagar police and foisted a false complaint accusing the former of assaulting her, the police said.

On Saturday, following the order of Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Annamalai, the Girinagar police took up a suo motu case against Vijay and his family, charging them under Section 107 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

The police have issued summons to the family members, warning them to keep away from anti-social activities or face legal action.
