He said "If I am found guilty shoot me in front of the police station,"He added," I went to the birthday party of my friend Vishnu at Novotel. I don't know who the complainant is. I was at my table. They were sitting in front of my table. I told bouncers that I have a lot of friends and asked to move them aside. Even a TRS MLA was sitting in the table in front of me. Bouncers told the girls four to five times. She didn't listen and entered into an argument with the bouncers,"
Ashish said," This all looks like a diversion. She might have mistaken about me. I asked the inspector to check the CCTV footage. All the facts will come out. It is a political drama. As I am active in BJYM and doing a lot of programmes like Gaurakhana and Dharma protection they targeted me.I am emotionally disturbed due to the wrong allegations. I will die in front of the police station if wrong. Beat me up without clothes if I am wrong. The Pub as crowded she may have mistaken me. FIR has been booked against me,".
