Actress Shantini Deva who hails from Malaysia and relocated to India to serve as a tourism ambassador for Malaysia, recently filed a complaint against former Indian minister Manikandan.

The actress had been in a live-in relationship with Manikandan for five years whom she first met regarding a business proposal in Malaysia.

Now the actress lodged a complaint against Manikandan for allegedly cheating and forcing an abortion. The actress further accused that Manikandan threatened to publish her compromising pictures to silence her from exposing this matter.

Following her complaint, Manikandan who was evading arrest for some time has finally been arrested for further investigation after the high court refused to grant him anticipatory bail.
