Hyderabad: Telugu anchor and host of popular show Konchem Touch Lo Unte Chepta Pradeep Machiraju, who hit the headlines after the infamous drunk and drive case, is expected to attend police counselling today.

The actor was caught driving under the influence on December 31, eve of New Year and was booked at Road No. 45, Banjara Hills. Pradeep was found driving in an inebriated condition and the police seized his BMW car (TS 07 EU 6666). The Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level at the time was 178/ml/mg which is far beyond the permissible 30/ml/mg of BAC.

The anchor was supposed to attend the counselling few days ago after his arrest. But he went absconding and later he released a video on social media. Pradeep in the video acknowledged his mistake and said that owing to professional commitments he was not able to attend the session. He added that he will abide by the law and cooperate with the police officials.
