Man held for trespassing into Big B’s house in Mumbai

Mumbai: A self-confessed fan of Amitabh Bachchan has landed in police custody after he allegedly scaled the compound wall of the megastar’s residence in suburban Juhu with the intention of displaying his “talent” before his idol.

23-year-old Banwari Yadav from Bihar was arrested for allegedly trespassing into ‘Jalsa’, Amitabh Bachchan’s residence in the wee hours yesterday, a Mumbai police official said today.

Yadav, who claims to be a singer, entered Big B’s house by climbing the compound wall on Sunday afternoon, he said. He wanted to showcase his talent to the megastar. After Amitabh’s staff spotted him, they handed him over to the police, the officer added.

A case has been registered in this regard and investigations are underway, he said.

Meanwhile, Yadav was produced before a local court which remanded him in police custody till August 7.
