In the complaint copy, Ravishankar said, "Me and Ragini had been for dinner along with friends. Shivaprakash came to me around 11.45 PM and started fighting. Why have you come with Ragini, he asked me and started abusing me. He hit me with a beer bottle and punched me on the face."
At this point, my friends protected me from him. Shivaprakash also threatened to take my life. Thus my life is under danger. Shivaprakash should be booked legally and action should be taken against him," he added.
