Violin maestro L Subramaniam, on Tuesday, said he was contemplating
legal action against those who were spreading
“false allegations” against him and his family.

A Dalit organisation had petitioned the police that the musician had
sexually harassed his former maid, Bhagya, 31.

The Yelahanka-based outfit approached the police after Subramaniam and
his wife, singer Kavita Krishnamurthy, lodged a police complaint of
theft from their house.They had named Bhagya as a suspect in the

City police commissioner Shankar M Bidari said that the police
received a representation from the Dalit organisation, saying the
musician had sexually harassed the maid.

“The alleged victim did not register any complaint against the
musician personally,” the commissioner said.

The police considered the representation as a petition and were
probing the case.

Meanwhile, Subramaniam said he was planning to take action against all
parties responsible for spreading false allegations against him and
his family. He added that the allegations were levelled against him to
divert the investigators’ attention from the theft case.

Euros, Indian currencies and other valuables, all worth Rs6 lakh were
found missing from Subramaniam’s house in RMV 2nd Stage between
December 28, 2009 and September 2 this year.

“Bhagya was engaged through Avon Facility Management Services Ltd. She
had stolen cash and valuables valued about Rs6 lakh and the police are
currently investigating the case,” the violinist said.

According to the FIR registered by the Sanjaynagar police, 5000 euros,
Rs55,000 and a gold chain were stolen from the house.
In a statement made to the police, Subramaniam had stated that
Bhagya’s lifestyle had changed over time, which made him suspect her
in the case.

The Dalit organisation made the representation against the renowned
violinist after the theft case was filed.
