HYDERABAD, 13 JUNE: Pro-Telangana students today clashed with police on the Osmania University (OU) campus for the second consecutive day, demanding that they be allowed to take out a rally towards the state Assembly.
Protesting students pelted stones at policemen after they were stopped at the NCC gate on the OU campus, even as police retaliated by firing teargas shells.
Two protesters have been arrested in connection with the stone-pelting incident, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East Zone) R Jaya Lakshmi told PTI.
Pro-Telangana activists were planning to take out a rally from the OU campus towards the Assembly as a part of the Telangana Joint Action Committee sponsored “Chalo Assembly” call for 14 June due to delay in formation of Telangana state.
Raising pro-Telangana and anti-police slogans, protesting students were seen trying to pull down the barricades and the barbed wires placed on the OU campus to prevent the agitators from taking out procession/rally.
Pro-Telangana students had also clashed with police personnel on the OU campus yesterday when they were prevented from taking out a rally in support of the “Chalo Assembly” protest. pti
