The accused, Advaitha, is a resident of Sadashivanagar. A senior police officer said around 7.30 am, Advaitha had taken her dogs out for a walkwhen she saw her neighbour Bhavana passing by. She shouted at Bhavana for not wearing her mask properly and allegedly hit her with a stick.

Based on the complaint, the police questioned Advaitha. She claimed that she is an IAS officer and shouted at the police too. Later, she was released on station bail and the police also took statements of the witnesses for further investigation, the officer said.
