Osmania University Violence, Telangana Bandh For TRS Support

At least 10 students were injured on Sunday as clashes broke out between police and students at Osmania University here following the arrest of Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhara Rao in Karimnagar before he was to begin a 'fast unto death' demanding separate statehood for the Telangana region.

Even as police was grappling with the situation on the campus, another youngster, later identified as Srikanth immolated himself near LB Nagar cross roads.

Srikanth was shifted to Gandhi Hospital where his condition was stated to be critical.

Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao, who was on his way to Siddipet to launch his indefinite fast was intercepted by a heavy contingent of police on Karimnagar outskirts and taken into custody.
Tension prevailed on the Osmania University campus as students supporting the demand for a separate Telangana fought pitched battles with police.

Police said some students climbed onto the terrace of one of the hostel buildings and threatened to jump down. Another student was seen pouring petrol on himself, demanding that the police stay away from the building.

As the news of KCR's arrest broke out, students took to the streets in the campus and pelted stones at policemen deployed in large number since on Saturday.
