Alleging assault and abuse, Krishik Gowda, son of MLC, K T Srikantegowda, lodged a police complaint against four reporters in Mandya, Karnataka on Wednesday.

The police filed FIR against four reporters - K N Nagegowda, Sunil, H S Mahesh and Madan, belonging to TV channels. Krishik Gowda has alleged that the reporters abused his father
Srikantegowda and assaulted him at Ambedkar Bhavan during COVID-19 tests on the journalists on Saturday.

There was a delay in lodging the complaint as they were upset due to the media reports, he reasoned.

The journalists attended the programme wearing black badges, as a mark of protest, during a meeting at the Zilla Panchayat hall on Wednesday.
