The leader of Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Telangana Party (YSRTP) and the sister of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagmohan Reddy, YS Sharmila was seen getting into a scuffle with the police while she attempted to leave for the SIT office to discuss the TSPSC paper leak matter.
Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) cancelled the Assistant Engineer exams in March 2023 due to reports of a paper leak. An SIT team was formed to investigate the matter which questioned around 150 related to the case including the top scorers in the exam.

The politician tried to make her way past them and in doing so she slapped and hit some of the officers. The video of the entire incident shows her mishandling the police officers and is now viral.
