The police today arrested 10 Osmania University students as they were protesting against the death of Dalit Student Rohith Vemula.
The Hyderabad police, on Tuesday, foiled attempts to take out a ‘peace’ rally towards Tank Bund and took 54 protesting students in preventive custody. They were later let off.
The students, under the banner of Osmania University JAC and University of Hyderabad JAC, assembled near the People’s Plaza as per their plan to take out a ‘peace’ rally towards Ambedkar statue at Tank Bund.
In the appeal put up on the varsity website, Srivastava said the University activities have come to a standstill due to continued blockade of academic and administrative facilities because of the agitation.
This will lead to a delay in the completion of courses affecting the employment and higher education prospects of the students, he said.
