Barber Mallikarjun Shetty, whose household has been ‘socially boycotted’, mentioned that this has occurred to his for the third time, including that he had paid the wonderful earlier as effectively.

“It happened to me for the third time. I had paid a fine earlier too. One Channa Naik and others are torturing me for offering a haircut to members of the SC-ST community. If the issue is not resolved, my family will have to commit suicide. I have complained to authority,” Shetty mentioned.
