The Telangana Jagruthi president K. Kavitha and 30 other women were arrested by police on Tank Bund road when they were heading towards the Legislative Assembly demanding installation of the statue of B.R. Ambedkar within the Assembly premises.
A few hundred women had gathered near the statue of Ambedkar nearby and joined activists of Scheduled Caste organisations who were already protesting against the recent incidents in Amalapuram. As soon as they got up from there and tried to walk up to Assembly, the police intervened and took them away to Nampally police station.
Among those arrested were TRS women's wing president Tula Uma and general secretary Gollapudi Madhavi.
