Violence mars protest march for Telangana
IANS, 10 Mar 2011

HYDERABAD: In a major show of strength, thousands of people violated ban orders and removed police barricades to assemble at Tank Bund area here on Thursday as part of the ‘million march’ for a separate Telangana state.

The peaceful protest during the day was marred by incidents of violence in the evening.

Protesters damaged some statues of Telugu leaders on Tank Bund, set afire a police vehicle and attacked a vehicle and crew of a television channel.

The incidents, along with the attack on two Congress MPs, took place despite an assurance by the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC) that it would be a peaceful protest.

Thousands of Telangana activists remained on Tank Bund at 5.30 pm though the TJAC had announced that the protest would conclude at 4 pm. (మరింత…)
