A video showing Chowdhury arguing with police officials who were trying to prevent her from going to Raj Bhavan has gone viral

The video shows Chowdhury grabbing a policeman's collar as female officers try to pull her away during a protest in Hyderabad by the Congress against the grilling of top party leader Rahul Gandhi by the Enforcement Directorate.

Later, Chowdhury told TV channels that she had no intention of humiliating the police official and she merely caught hold of his shoulder as she was about to fall when being pushed.

"We know how to respect the uniform. Police also have to learn to respect women. I have no intention of hitting policemen. That is not my intention at all. But I was being manhandled. I was losing my balance and I was falling on that man. You can see that in the visuals very clearly that they are suddenly trying to push me and that is the reason my hand slipped from when I was (trying to hold the shoulder) reaching for his shoulder he moved and I caught his collar. It was not my intention to humiliate him or anything like that," she said. When contacted, a senior police official said Chowdhury was subsequently taken into preventive custody.
