“I’ve been booked… I didn’t assault, I don’t have anything against that young man. He never did anything to me. I was losing balance and I held on. If you move, I’ll have to hold this to steady myself as we were being pushed and bullied from back,” Renuka told TV channels.
A case was also registered against Telangana Congress chief Revanth Reddy under IPC sections 151, 140, 147, 149, 341, 353, informed Punjagutta PS Inspector Niranjan Reddy.
