For those who are uninitiated, Samyuktha Hegde in her Instagram post yesterday had mentioned, "After being in a democracy and following all the norms of social distancing, we were abused and ridiculed by Kavitha Reddy and the mob in Agara Lake for practising our hula-hoop while wearing sportswear. Despite being polite and trying to solve the problem, the lady hit my friend and used disparaging remarks about me and my friends.” The actress had also added she was extremely disappointed with how the police who came to the location behaved, and mentioned that they spoke with the woman with respect, while they asked her to be quiet."
