Indian singer Kesiraju Srinivas was arrested on Tuesday on charges of harassing a woman.
On December 29, a case was registered against the singer commonly known as “Ghazal Srinivas” following a complaint by a female radio jockey, India Today reported.
Srinivas holds the Guinness World Record for singing in most languages at one concert and has denied the allegation and said he had never misbehaved with her.
“A case was registered against him on December 29. The woman showed us some evidence of the harassment that she was being subjected to,” an official said.
“We arrested him and produced in the court. He has been remanded in judicial custody till January 11,” he added.
In 2008, Srinivas sang songs in 76 languages in a single concert commemorating Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophies in the presence of the then-Indian president Pratibha Patil, according to guinessworldrecords.com.
His multi-lingual singing talent has not only earned him one Guinness world record mention, but another two in the subsequent years.
After the concert on Gandhi, Srinivas launched an album — The Path of Mahatma Gandhi — where he sang in 65 foreign languages and 60 Indian languages that earned him his second Guinness’ mention.
Following this, in 2010, he was again listed in the acclaimed world records for performing 54 vocal concerts in 24 hours.
