Tehsildar of Kurnool's Pattikonda Mandal, Uma Maheshwari has tied a rope in her office to serve as a barricade between her and the visitors after the visit of some people who were allegedly drunk.

"I panicked after Vijaya's murder (in Abdullapurmet MRO of Ranga Reddy district, Telangana). Yesterday some people came to my office without any application, they were drunk. Seeing them in such condition scared me. So I tied a rope creating a barricade between my chair and the visitors," Maheshwari told ANI on Wednesday.

The Tehsildar, however, clarified that she had removed the rope after an hour.

"The rope was tied for only an hour, later I removed it. I did so only out of fear," Maheshwari said.
