RTC bus set ablaze at Ramanthapur

Pro-Telangana organisations and parties have given Telangana bandh
call on Monday protesting the desecration of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar's
statues in different parts of the State.

Members of Osmania University Joint Action Committee (OUJAC) met TRS
president K. Chandrasekhar Rao and sought his party's support for the
bandh. A round-table conference with leaders of various organisations
and political parties was also organised on Sunday to seek their
support. All the splinter groups of OUJAC's have expressed their
support to the bandh.
Mild tension

Meanwhile, mild tension prevailed at Doordarshan (DD) office in
Ramanthapur on Sunday night when unidentified persons torched an
APSRTC bus protesting desecration of Ambedkar's statues. Carrying
sticks and petrol bottles, miscreants stopped route number 113E bus
from ESI to Uppal and asked passengers to get down immediately.

Miscreants assaulted a passenger Anwar and bus driver D. Sudhakar for
trying to resist them. They then damaged the windscreen and torched
the bus. Police said OUJAC students might have scaled the university
compound wall abutting the DD office and carried out their operation.

A fire tender was rushed to the spot and doused the flames. Irate
students damaged a truck parked near the office of Hyderabad
Metropolitan Development Authority at Tarnaka and escaped from the
spot. Special police pickets were posted on the premises of OU and
surroundings to prevent any untoward incidents.
