High tension prevailed in Kakatiya university

Pro-Telangana students allegedly forced their way into the chamber of Vice-Chancellor of Kakatiya University in Warangal and threatened to set themselves on fire if police intervened. The Vice-Chancellor was not in the chamber, police said.

A demonstration was also staged outside the Nizam College hostel . Meanwhile, the 36-hour ‘Samara Deeksha’ protest by the pro-Telangana activists at Indira Park here continued for the second day today. Osmania University Joint Action Committee had planned to take out a protest march today from Indira Park to Gun Park in support of the Samara Deeksha agitation of Telangana Joint Action Committee but police foiled the plan.

Students of OUJAC and other organisations removed the barricades near the protest venue and tried to march towards Gun Park after arguing with the police. Security forces, deployed in large numbers, pushed them back. Some protesters were also taken into custody.
