TS Police Officers Association condemns Renukas behaviour

Telangana State Police Officer’s Association on Saturday condemned such behaviour by Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury

Hyderabad: After Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury's manhandling on duty police officer sub-inspector of Punjagutta police station, the Telangana State Police Officer's Association on Saturday condemned such behaviour by her.

In a press release, the association said the Congress leader for her personal publicity resorted to cheap tactics and such unprofessional behaviour will impact the morale of the police force.

The Punjagutta police had booked a case against the former union minister on Thursday for obstructing a government servant from performing duty and rioting during the Chalo Raj Bhavan rally on Thursday at Khairatabad junction. The Congress leader while being taken into custody held a police sub-inspector by his collar.

Earlier on June 17, Congress leader and former union minister Renuka Chowdhury accused the Hyderabad police of deliberately provoking the situation and harassing her.

"I have been arrested illegally. Unlawful detainment of me as a citizen. I was walking away peacefully to my own vehicle accompanied by the other ladies. We were requested by the police to go back. We went back. My vehicle was coming. I was walking towards it. The media was questioning me. When I was talking to them, the police came and deliberately provoked the situation and deliberately manhandled the women including me and they have arrested me. I demand justice," she said.

Earlier in the day, Chowdhury sought to justify her action of grabbing a police officer's collar by claiming she had done it to prevent her from losing her balance and falling down.

The Congress leader had hit the headlines after visuals of her grabbing the collar of a police personnel went viral. The incident took place during a 'Chalo Raj Bhavan' protest organised by the Congress in Telangana to protest the alleged harassment of their leader Rahul Gandhi by the Enforcement Directorate.

The police have charged her under Section 353, or assault or criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his duty, of the Indian Penal Code.
