He was arrested in Hyderabad and brought to Kadapa in cheque bounce case

The Kadapa First Class Judicial Magistrate court granted bail to film producer and actor Bandla Ganesh in a cheque bounce case, after initially remanding him in judicial custody.

Ganesh had allegedly failed to repay ₹13 crore taken from Mahesh, a native of Kadapa, forcing the latter to file a complaint.

With Ganesh allegedly remaining indifferent to the notices served on him, the court issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against him, based on which the Banjara Hills police arrested him in Hyderabad on Wednesday and brought him to Kadapa.

The police escorted Ganesh to the court on Thursday and produced him before the mobile court, which remanded him in judicial custody for 10 days.

Settlement

However, with the two parties negotiating a settlement, the court granted him bail on payment of ₹4 lakh to the aggrieved party. The remaining amount should be paid by November 14. As many as 51 cheque bounce cases in Proddatur and two in Kadapa were filed against Ganesh.
