New Delhi: A 47-year-old ad-film director was arrested for allegedly molesting a minor artiste during a shoot at south Delhi’s Fatehpur Beri area, police said today.
The accused, identified as Ravinder Ahlawat, also works as a documentary producer and owns an acting school in Lajpat Nagar area, police said.
The incident was reported last month after which he went absconding. He was finally arrested on Wednesday after he arrived in Delhi, a senior police official said.

She further alleged that Ahlawat also asked for sexual favour for a promised role as a child artiste in a Bollywood movie, he said.
Ahlawat has been booked under relevant sections of IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, the official added.
