Kurnool Superintendent of Police Raghurami Reddy said Pinckney was apprehended in Gurgoan on Monday and was brought to Kurnool on a warrant. The arrest was based on a complaint alleging unethical circulation of money through Amway's operations.

"He will be produced in the court shortly. The CEO has been booked under the Prize Chits and Money Circulation. Schemes (Banning) Act," said Reddy.

This is the second time that the Amway India CEO has been taken into custody.

Kerala Police had an year ago arrested Pinckney and two company Directors on charges of financial irregularities.
