Well-known TV anchor Pradeep Machiraju, who was caught for drunk driving on the night of December 31, attended police counselling today.
He attended the session with his father, at the Goshamahal police station.
Speaking to the media later, the anchor said that he had attended the counselling following a directive he had received from the police requiring his attendance at the session, and that he had learnt a lot by attending it.
He said that the police were patient in explaining about the many changes that took place in the body upon consuming alcohol including the increased risk of causing accidents harming not just the driver's life but those of others, too.
He claimed that he would attend the other sessions being conducted by the police as well.
He also reached out to his fans and requested them to not commit the same mistakes as he had.
The television personality will also need to attend a court hearing on Tuesday in connection with the case.
