The husband of a leading TV actress was arrested on Sunday after being accused of molesting his wife's daughter from a previous marriage.

He was remanded to police custody till Tuesday by a magistrate court on Monday. An FIR was lodged at the Samta Nagar police station.

According to the complaint, the accused was sexually harassing his 21-year-old stepdaughter since October, 2017.
