Actress Samyuktha Hegde and her friend were the victims of an unfortunate attack in a public park. She and a couple of her friends had gone to a park to practise their dance and workout. As stated in her video, Samyuktha and her friends were attacked by a lady for wearing a ‘sports bra’ in public.

Samyuktha Hegde unconvinced with Kavitha Reddy apology

Enraged and distraught at the incident, Samyuktha shared videos from the spot on social media. Her attacker was found to be lake activist and Congress member from Karnataka, Kavitha Reddy.

Kavitha Reddy has now issued an unconditional apology to the actress for the incident, however, denies moral policing.

In a tweet, she said, “I have always opposed Moral Policing. I realize that my actions were construed as such. An argument ended up in me reacting aggressively as well, it was a mistake. As a responsible citizen n progressive woman, I own up to n sincerely apologise to @SamyukthaHegde and her Friends!” (sic)

However, Samyuktha doesn't seem to have bought Reddy's apology though she has dropped the case.

She took to Instagram and wrote, "Hi everyone.

I really really appreciate all the support I’ve been getting, all the love, all the posts, all the trolls, all the tweets that gave this voice an amplifier. You all have played such a major role in making this a nationwide impact, this is a feather on the cap for all of us as a society and I hope that the horrible incident of Friday results in wider awareness about how moral policing cannot be tolerated in our lovely cosmopolitan city or anywhere else. Let’s be clear, Kavitha Reddy’s apology was not satisfactory or genuine, She had not taken down her posts or tweets for 16 hours after issuing a public apology which shows how casual she was about this apology and had clearly done this under pressure as it was affecting her public image and many of you have also pointed this out. However, I want the focus of this issue to not be on her or me or the incident, I hope this goes a small way in working on greater freedom for women every where around. I've consulted with my family and also keeping Kavitha Reddy’s age in mind, I am not interested and don't want to pusure my case against her and I have formally requested the police yesterday about the same . However, I want to be clear: I still hope that strong action is taken against Anil Reddy and the others with him, who threatened and abused us at the park and made us feel so helpless. NOBODY IN THE WORLD HAS A RIGHT TO MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE THAT AND IT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED ANYMORE

Again I must express my love and gratitude for all the support from all of you, my legal team ( Arjun Rao and Maitreyi Bhat ), and specially want to mention 2 people who were there and available for me throughout all this. Shraddha for all the advice and mental support that you've given me and Pavan for just being there by my side. I love you and I couldn't have done this without you guys.

Lastly but most importantly I want to thank my family for strongly standing with me, emotionally supporting me and letting me know that no matter what, they are with me and as a girl I think that's the most imporrant support.
