YS Sharmila arrested for her comments on MLA Shankar Naik
Mahabubabad District, February 19: The Police arrested YSRTP president Y.S. Sharmila here on Sunday following a complaint lodged by BRS leaders over her alleged objectionable comments against MLA Banoth Shankar Naik and his wife. The police took her to Hyderabad.
On Sunday morning, tension prevailed for some time at Bhajana Thanda near Bethavolu village about six km away from here where she was camping in the night as the BRS cadre led by the MLA’s wife Seetamahalakshmi staged a protest demanding an apology for her allegations on the MLA and his family. The BRS activists have burnt a flex of Sharmila at the camp after tearing it. As the police thought that the situation would be out of control in view of the protests and counter-protests, the police served a notice canceling Shamila’s padayatra and arrested her.
The police have reportedly filed a case against Sharmila under the SC and ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act since MLA Shankar Naik belongs to the ST community. Addressing a public gathering here on Saturday as a part of padayatra, Sharmila allegedly made several objectionable comments against the MLA and his wife. Following this, the BRS leaders lodged a complaint against her. Police are yet to confirm the sections under which she has been booked.
