Telangana police went on to say that he was formally arrested. After completing the mandatory medical formalities, he would be produced before the court.

On the other hand Morani asserts that the sexual relationship was consensual. To tell the readers, Morani is also an accused in the 2G telecom scam and is also0 the latest among several film personalities charged with sexual assault.
Earlier, a woman had lodged a complaint with Hayatnagar police in January claiming that Morani had lured her into sexual relation by promising to marry her.
She further went on to say that she was raped repeatedly in Mumbai and also twice at the Ramoji Film City that is on the outskirts of Hyderabad between September and October, 2015.
She said that Morani blackmailed her as he had shot her nude pictures and videos on his mobile and used to say that he would share the pictures with her friends.
