Hyderabad: Police have registered a case against Congress senior leader Renuka Chowdhary for obstructing a sub-inspector from performing his duty on Thursday.

While taking part in the 'Chalo Raj Bhavan' protest to denounce the alleged harassment of Rahul Gandhi by the Enforcement Directorate, Renuka had allegedly grabbed the collar of a sub-inspector of police when cops were taking her into preventive custody.

The case was booked under section 151, 140, 147, 149, 341, and 353 of IPC at Punjagutta Police Station.

Congress workers staged a dharna at the Khairatabad when police prevented them from proceeding toward Raj Bhavan. Police resorted to lathi-charge to disperse the workers. Few Congress workers were injured.

In a video released later, Renuka Chowdhary said that she lost her balance and held the cop's shirt. She said she had no ill-feeling against him.

With police blocking the routes to Raj Bhavan, Congress party activists set fire to a two-wheeler and smashed windows of TSRTC buses.

Telangana Congress chief Revanth Reddy, CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, Geetha Reddy, and other protesting leaders were arrested and taken to different police stations in the city.

The protest was organized against the alleged harassment of party leader Rahul Gandhi by the ED.
