Hyderabad: The former CEO of MOJO TV Revathi was taken into custody from her residence by Banjara Hills police on Friday.

Police said it acted on a complaint made by a Dalit man Prasad, who alleged that anchor Raghu and Revathi had defamed him during a show in MOJO TV.

Taking to Twitter, Revathi said, "Cops at my doorstep! They want to arrest me without a warrant. For a case that is as old as January. I am an A2 in this case of SC/ST. There is no notice, no warrant. These are Banjara Hills police on the direction of their ACP KS Rao. They tried to take my phone.”

"They tell me I'm creating a law and order problem! How brilliant is that I am creating a law and order problem in my own home! Brilliant job," she added.

Police have registered a case under ST/SC Atrocity Act and took them into custody.

Investigation is on.
