Bigg Boss Kannada contestant Tanisha Kuppanda may have earned some reprieve in an atrocity case.

BENGALURU: Bigg Boss Kannada contestant Tanisha Kuppanda seems to have got a clean chit in a case related to Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, wherein she was accused of making derogatory comments against a particular community.

Padma, the state president of the women’s wing of the Bhovi community organisation, had lodged a complaint with the Kumbalgod police alleging that Tanisha had made objectionable remarks against the community during the Bigg Boss show. Following this, the police had registered an FIR against Tanisha under the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

Padma had also provided a video as evidence of Tanisha’s conversation with Drone Pratap alleging that the latter had used objectionable words against the Bhovi community. The probe was headed by a Deputy SP and both Tanisha and Drone Pratap had also recorded their statements.

The police had sent the video with the objectionable audio for forensic tests and the report has reached them after two months. The report says it cannot be established that Tanisha made any objectionable remarks and says a particular word used by her does not amount to insulting the community.

Based on statements of Tanisha and Drone Pratap, and also the forensic report, the Kumbalgod police are preparing to file a B-report in the case, sources informed.
