Court notices to Yash, mother for defaulting on house rent

Court notices to Yash, mother for defaulting on house rent

A sessions court here has issued notices to Kannada film actor Yash and his mother Pushpa, ordering them to file replies within June 20 in a complaint lodged by their landlord over non-payment of rent.

The court slapped the notices after a man named Dr M Muniprasad filed a private complaint before it, accusing Yash and Pushpa of “threatening” him and refusing to pay Rs 21.37 lakh owed by them since 2011 for renting his house in Girinagar.

The actor had rented Muniprasad’s house at 5th Cross, 3rd Block, 3rd Phase, Banashankari, on October 16, 2010. There was an agreement to pay a monthly rent of Rs 40,000 for 11 months. Both the parties had agreed to renew the agreement after 11 months by mutual consent with an increase of five per cent in the rent, according to the Girinagar police.

Yash paid the rent for 11 months, but defaulted thereafter. Police said he kept Muniprasad in the dark and splashed out on renovating the house interiors. Dr Muniprasad wanted to rent the house to a relative and asked the actor to pay the remaining rent and vacate the house. But the actor neither responded nor paid the rent, according to police. After trying several times to convince Yash, Dr Muniprasad made a complaint to the Girinagar police on March 20, 2015. But police said they didn’t register a case as it was a civil matter.

Meanwhile, Yash made it big in Kannada films after moving into Dr Muniprasad’s house. He also constructed a large house near Banashankari by spending huge money. Still, he believed Dr Muniprasad’s house had brought him luck and success and hence he was unwilling to vacate it. He often stayed there and went to his own house on and off, police added.

When police summoned Yash’s mother Pushpa, she rebuked them, stressing that police had “no business” in the matter and were wrong in summoning her. She claimed that Muniprasad never came to Bengaluru to collect the rent. She said she was ready to pay the rent, but had sought time to vacate the house.
