Santoshi Rupa, wife of popular Telugu film director Sreenu Vaitla, who registered a case of domestic harassment against him on October 15, withdrew it the very next day and has told the police that she is ready to stay with him, according to Times of India.

On October 15, Rupa had approached the Banjara Hills police station alleging that Vaitla has assaulted her after an altercation. Post the incident, Rupa left their house at Journalist’s Colony in Jubilee Hills and went to live with her parents at Yousufguda. “Based on the complaint lodged by Rupa, we have registered a case against Sreenu Vaitla under section 498-A (subjecting a married woman to cruelty) of the IPC,” said Inspector P Murali Krishna.
