Police also arrested Susheel's driver M Ramesh alias Appa Rao. Sources said they were being questioned.

Both Susheel and Ramesh were booked on Saturday under the Nirbhaya Act for stalking a woman and trying to pull her inside their car.

The incident occurred in the posh Banjara Hills neighbourhood on Thursday when the woman, a teacher, was walking on the road. She alleged that the duo passed lewd comments and tried to drag in by holding her hand.

Citing the victim's complaint, the duo were booked for eve-teasing and misbehaving but no arrests were made.

On Friday, some television channels reported how the police tried to hush up the case.

Susheel clarified through a social media post on Sunday that he spotted a puppy on the road and got down from car to pick it up but the woman without any reasons started shouting and abusing.

"The crowd joined hands with the unknown people whose only intention was political vengeance," he said.

However, the CCTV footage beamed on some news channels show the car slowing down near the burqa-clad woman. Perturbed by this the woman started walking faster but the car continued following her.
