The blackmail episode had taken place in June this year. Nayana Krishna, with the help of another five people had allegedly blackmailed a well-known 68-year-old doctor and demanded Rs one crore after laying a honeytrap for him and filming him in the act. The doctor finally had agreed to pay Rs 25 lac. He paid Rs 1 lac and then approached the police. The police managed to trap some of the blackmailers and arrested them later, while Nayana and another small-time actress were absconding.
The police had slapped Nayana Krishna with three charges. She had managed to secure conditional bail from the high court on September 5 with surety. As she did not appear for any interrogation afterwards and did not cooperate with the investigations, the CCB police arrested her now.
