Mysore: Kannada film actor Raghuveer and 14 others were on Friday taken into custody on charges of running a prostitution racket in the city, police said.

Raghuveer, who shot to fame with the 1990 hit film "Chaitrada Premanjali", and two others were produced in a court and remanded to judicial custody.

Two women, also allegedly involved in the racket, had been remanded to a rehabilitation centre "Shaktidhama" here, while the others detained were under police custody, police said.

Raghuveer, however, dismissed the allegations levelled against him, saying it was a conspiracy by some of his detractors to defame him.
