It is alleged that two workers of a fish meal company owned by Udupi District in-charge Minister had teased Prakash’s pregnant wife while the couple were returning in a bike from a clinic on April 5. " I had objected to their act and attacked him with my hand. Later I had made my wife lodge a complaint but it was not accepted. As the accused works in a minister’s company case was not registered owing to pressure. Instead, a case was filed against me," said Prakash. An audio clip in which Prakash has narrated the incident has gone viral. In the clip Prakash also explained how the minister’s wife forced him to enter into a compromise.
