The accused persons have been identified as Abhishek, Ravikanth, Raghu and Shyam.

“We received a complaint on July 13 afternoon from a senior journalist and anchor stating that in March, she received a call from ‘Bigg Boss Telugu’ stating that she has been selected for its third season which will begin on July 21,” ACP Rao said.

“She accepted the offer and met four members of the reality show. As per the statement, during the meeting, those four members misbehaved with her and asked her to satisfy their boss for the final selection for the show,” he added.
