Nearly 20 students affiliated with the Osmania University Joint Action Committee were taken into custody on Wednesday when they staged dharna before the State Secretariat demanding boycott of Andhra Pradesh Formation Day celebrations.
Holdings banners of OUJAC, the students tried to barge into the Secretariat while shouting pro-Telangana slogans. However, the security personnel foiled their attempt and took them into custody.
Without even waiting for a police jeep or van, the security personnel shifted them to a nearby police station in auto-rickshaws. Security has been intensified further after the OUJAC’s protest.
