According to Dileep, Huccha Venkat started behaving aggressively without a valid reason. "Venkat came to me, asking why I was staring at him. He appeared threatening while he was repeatedly asking if I knew who he was. I started enquiring if he was Huccha Venkat, after which he slapped me and destroyed my car,” he said.
It appears like the people who were around, who felt the actor is being insensitive in behaving in a wrong manner, thrashed him. Police have taken Venkat into custody and interrogation is underway.
