Police have included Chikoti Praveen Kumar's name along with his personal security. Praveen Kumar was on the run, while the others were arrested. He released a selfie video after the whole drama saying, that he was targeted for preaching Hindu Dharma. He said that he dedicated himself to fighting on any derogatory remarks made against the religion. This is a clear hint that Chikoti is planning to join BJP or else showering his love to get the party blessings.
