Hyderabad: Guinness World Record holder Kesiraju Srinivas, popularly known as 'Ghazal Srinivas', was arrested Tuesday on charges of sexually harassing a woman employee of a private radio channel, managed by him.

The woman, in a police complaint filed on December 29, accused Srinivas of harassment.

Based on the complaint, the singer was arrested and a case of sexual harassment was registered against him.

A local court later remanded him into judicial custody till January 12.

Srinivas, however, has denied the allegations against him.

"I respect women... I treated the complainant like my daughter. It is untrue that I harassed her," the 51-year-old singer told reporters.

Srinivas found a place in the Guinness Book of World Records after becoming the first person to sing a song in most languages. He recorded the track 'Golden Dreams of Gandhiji' in 125 languages.

The singer, who sings ghazals in Telugu, had also participated in a campaign against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
