Hyderabad, Nov 8: Tension prevailed in the Osmania University campus here Wednesday after students clashed with police during the funeral procession of a youth who committed suicide for a separate Telangana state.
Violence broke out in Tarnaka near the campus as students, who wanted to carry the body in a procession to Gun Park near the state assembly, clashed with the police.
As they were prevented from taking out a procession, the students threw stones at police personnel, who retaliated by firing teargas shells.
Police also resorted to baton charge near English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) and a B.Ed. college on the campus to disperse the protesting students.
Amid tight security, the police later shifted the body of V. Santosh to an ambulance and sent it to his native village in Adilabad district, around 300 km from here.
