Submitted by alvin on Sat, 2016-09-10 19:14 Bengaluru: A 23-year-old resident of Srirampuram was attacked after he allegedly mocked Kannada film stars on their participation in the Cauvery agitation on Facebook. Santosh D, whose roots are in Tamil Nadu but was born and brought up in Bengaluru, was slapped by a few locals for making fun of Kannada actors on Facebook. The posts were up on Facebook for the past two days. The posts included pictures of Kannada actors Duniya Vijay, Prajwal Devaraj, Komal, Shivarajkumar and Darshan. Santosh had edited these pictures and added funny comments. His posts went viral and eventually riled a few Kannadigas, who tracked him at Girinagar and slapped him several times before forcing him to withdraw his posts and comments. "I did a mistake by posting such nasty comments against Kannada actors. I was born here in Karnataka. I made cheap comments against those who participated in Cauvery agitation. But now I regret for posting hate comments," said Santosh.
