Bandh in Warangal over lathi-charge on Osmania students

Warangal (AP), February 15: Normal life was paralysed here today as students, women and people from various walks of life held sit-ins, road blockades and several other forms of protest during a bandh against the lathi-charge on students at the Osmania University in Hyderabad.

Students of the Kakatiya University here held a sit-in in front of the house of Lok Sabha member S Rajaiah demanding that he quit immediately to mount pressure on the Centre on Telangana statehood issue.

The shutdown was called by the all-party Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) and the students.

A large group of lawyers staged a sit-in at the residence of Major Irrigation Minister P Laxmaiah demanding his immediate resignation. The protesters threw eggs and tomatoes at the house.

The protesters condemned the alleged high-handedness of police in the incident at Osmania University yesterday.
