FONT SIZE

Hyderabad: Left parties and their affiliated students' organizations staged protests near the US consulate here Thursday against the ill-treatment meted out to Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade by the US authorities in New York.

Tension prevailed in the busy Begumpet area as police stopped dozens of protestors who tried to march towards Paigah Palace housing the consulate.

Police, who had erected the barricades on the road leading to the consulate, arrested the protestors who reached there in batches. Raising slogans of "Down with US imperialism", the protestors carried banners, placards and flags of their respective parties.

Police resisted the attempts of the protestors to remove the barricades. They jostled with each other, leading to tension. Police personnel were seen bundling the protestors into waiting vehicles and shifting them to police stations.

Taking strong exception to the handling of the situation by the police, a protestor alleged that police were acting as agents of the US. The banners carried by the protestors read "Uncle Sam, don't act ugly with India" and "Shame shame, America is still racist".
