Singer ‘locks up’ former tenant over rent dues
Complainant Anand Tripathi says he had vacated the Juhu studio of Avitesh, son of late music composer Aadesh Shrivastava, and had a dispute with his landlord over back payment

Singer Avitesh Srivastava was booked by the Juhu police on Friday for allegedly abusing and confining a 36-year-old music composer over a rent dispute.

Avitesh aka Avi, the son of late music composer Aadesh Srivastava, was booked for locking up Anand Tripathi.

“An FIR under sections 342 and 504 of IPC was registered by the police on the complaint. A team of police officials rescued the complainant from a studio in Juhu, where he had been locked,” a police officer told Mirror.

Speaking to Mirror, the complainant, Tripathi said, “I am a music composer and had rented the studio for Rs 1 lakh per month, and paid Rs 4 lakh as deposit in 2016. But due to financial reasons, I had to leave the studio in March. I agree some dues were pending, it but now he (Avitesh) has been asking me to pay Rs 12 lakh. He said the Rs 4 lakh that I had paid as deposit has been deducted, and claimed I owed the Shrivastava family Rs 8 lakh.”

Tripathi, a Kandivali resident added: “I had been denying that I owed Srivastava Rs 8 lakh. He claimed I owed him 12 months’ rent, which I denied. I had agreed to settle whatever rent was really pending for some months, and had asked for some more time to pay up. But on Thursday, Avitesh called me to Juhu, and when I reached there in the evening, he asked me to pay immediately. I told him I needed time to settle my dues but he insisted I pay right then. Negotiations continued for a few hours, and he later left after locking me in the studio. I somehow managed to contact a friend, who informed the police. Police officials reached the spot around 1.15 am and rescued me, after which I accompanied them to the police station.”

The police said Anand was found locked in the studio in Shanaaz Building on JVPD Road in Juhu. They said further investigations were on
