A 22-year-old student after posting a derogatory remark on facebook about Kannada film star actors for their participation in the protests over the Cauvery water dispute was thrashed by a group on Saturday.
The boy has been identified as Santosh, a resident of Sriramapura who was pursuing an engineering course in a private college in Banashankari.
The comment was viewed by the group of people on Kannada actors. In the afternoon when he came to the college he was thrashed in the public. Santosh later apologized to them and by the time Girinagar police reached the spot, both Santhosh and the group had left.
The group brought Santosh in the police station after the thrash but the police refused to file a case. The Senior officer warned him for such post and let him off.
“We would have registered a case if he was ready to file a complaint. We came to know of the incident only when a news channel reported about it. No case was registered by either Santhosh or the group ” senior police officer
