Bollywood action director Tinu Verma, who was absconding after allegedly attacking his step-brother Manohar, is now in police custody, police officials here confirmed Thursday.
When contacted by IANS, an official at Kurar Police Station in Malad East, where the case against Tinu was registered, said: "Yes, Tinu was arrested last night (Wednesday). But we can't reveal any further details more than this."
Jitendra, Manohar's real brother, too confirmed the news, saying: "I got a call from the police that they have arrested Tinu last night and now he is in police custody."
Tinu Verma is a popular stunt director, who has worked in films like "Gadar: Ek Prem Katha", "Krazzy 4", "Koi... Mil Gaya" and "Shootout at Wadala".
He went missing after allegedly assaulting his step-brother Manohar with a sword Aug 23.
Manohar is currently admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here where doctors said he was undergoing treatment for severe injuries. Both his legs were badly injured, and he suffered serious head injuries due to which he ended up having 21 stitches.
The episode is said to have been the fallout of their father's will and distribution of family property thereunder.
