A JUNIOR actress by the name of Sana Khan was arrested along with a few models during a police raid in Bangalore for allegedly running a sex racket, reported Malaysia Nanban.
However, the real Sana Khan, who stars in the Tamil film Silambattam, was actually hundreds of kilometres away in Mumbai and expressed shock over the news.
She vowed to take legal action against the police for linking her name to the sex syndicate although the arresting officer later clarified that it was another artiste who went by the same name.
The woman involved in the racket was among others caught in their apartment by policemen posing as customers.
> Tamil Nesan reported that a 20-year-old engineering student beheaded a teenage girl at St Xavier's College campus in Ranchi.
Although Brijendra Kumar refused to say why he killed Khusboo Kumari, 18, a love affair between the two is believed to be the reason for the murder.
