Responding to questions over Prashanth’s arrest, deputy commissioner of police, West Zone, SM Vijay Kumar, stated that the organisers will of Bigg Boss will also be probed for violence.

Prashanth was booked in one of the two cases filed by the police in connection with the violence, that reportedly aggravated after he returned to the studio, despite a secure passage through a different route post his win.

Bigg Boss Telugu fans went on a rampage after the declaration of winners of the reality show, damaging vehicles, including five RTC buses in Jubilee Hills. A huge crowd gathered outside the studio where the final rounds of the show were held and Pallavi Prashanth was declared the winner.

Due to stone-pelting, a couple of private vehicles were also damaged, including the vehicle of another Bigg Boss contestant, Anudeep.

In response to the chaos, the police resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the crowd. Following a complaint from TSRTC officials, police have registered an FIR into the incident and efforts are underway to identify the miscreants.
