A high political drama erupted on Tuesday in Hyderabad after police dragged away the car of  YSR Telangana Party chief YS Sharmila Reddy with the help of a crane, even as she sat inside it protesting KCR government in Talangana. She was later arrested by the Hyderabad Police as she proceeded to gherao CM office driving the damaged car. 

A huge number of YRSTP workers are staging protest out side the police station where Sharmila has been taken.

Earlier, Sharmila, who is the sister of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, stopped by police here when she along with party workers was marching towards Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's official residence complex-cum-camp office in protest against the alleged attack on her and her party activists by the ruling TRS cadre.

Condemning the alleged attack during the state-wide padayatra called 'Praja Prasthanam' taken up by her in Warangal district on Monday, the YSR Telangana Party chief marched towards the Chief Minister's camp office.

TV visuals showed during the march, she got inside a vehicle, (windowpanes of which were damaged) and was driving it, but was stopped by police.  After she refused to come out of it, police brought a crane and towed away the vehicle as she sat inside.

Some party supporters were also whisked away by police. Sharmila was later taken to SR Nagar police station. Vehicular movement on the road on which the YSR Telangana Party leader and workers were marching was disrupted for some time.

Mild tension prevailed in Warangal district on Monday after a caravan being used by Sharmila as part of her ongoing state-wide padayatra was attacked and set on fire besides damage to windowpanes of one vehicle.

In view of the law and order situation, police had stopped Sharmila and she was told to return and sent back to Hyderabad with police escort.

Protesting the remarks of Sharmila against TRS MLA from Narsampet, the ruling party activists gathered in large numbers and in order to prevent any law and order situation, police dispersed both the TRS workers and YSR Telangana Party workers.

The YSR Telangana party leader alleged that the caravan Sharmila is using to rest during her ongoing padayatra was attacked and torched by members of the ruling TRS.
