Violence erupted at the Osmania University campus in Hyderabad on Sunday after pro-Telangana students clashed with the police when they were prevented from taking out a rally to join the 'Telangana March'. Scores of slogan-shouting students broke the barricades on the campus and pelted stone at the police who retaliated by firing tear-gas shells while some students were also taken into preventive custody.
Pro-Telangana activists belonging to different students organisations wanted to be allowed to take out a rally to join the 'Telangana March', but the government had on Saturday denied them permission to carry out any rally from the varsity.
Para-military forces were seen moving into the campus to bring the situation under control even as Telangana activists alleged that the police showed "high-handedness" by taking them into the custody. "It (joining the Telangana March) is our aspiration," a Telagana activist said and held the police responsible for the violence. The Telangana Joint Action Committee has organised 'Telangana March' later in the afternoon to press for its demand for a separate state.
