The police who reached the Narayana college hostel, moved Sandhya Rani's body to Sangareddy government hospital for post-mortem. In this course, Sandhya's father obstructed the police and here is where the police mishandled the situation. A constable had kicked the father and this video got widely shared on social media.

NDTV journalist Uma Sudhir shared this video on her Twitter handle and to this minister KTR reacted promptly. He asked Telangana DGP to take appropriate action on the police constable. The DGP Mahendar Reddy called this an unfortunate incident and action has been taken against the cop. "The concerned police officer has been withdrawn from duties and attached to Hqrs.
