YS Sharmila was arrested by the Hyderabad police on Monday after she allegedly assaulted police officials who tried to stop her from leaving her house.

YSR Telangana Party president YS Sharmila on Tuesday lashed out at Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) over her clash with the police officials on Monday in Hyderabad. Dubbing him as a 'tyrant', Sharmila said yesterday's incident was atrocious as male police officers had approached her in a threatening manner to stop her.

"What happened yesterday was an atrocity. Once again, Telangana people have seen that KCR is a tyrant...Police didn't have an arrest warrant or a house arrest order...There were just two women officers and the rest were men. In order to stop me, the male officers themselves started approaching me in a threatening manner, almost to the extent of touching my body. It felt very humiliating and intimidating", she said to news agency ANI.
