Two self immolations in Hyderabad's Osmania University, the hub of the Telangana movement, effectively tripped the trigger guard. Students decided to take out a rally with the body of K. Venugopal, who committed suicide for statehood. Police resorted to lathicharge and the students retaliated. Chaos and more violence ensued. The rest of Telangana, cowed by a bandh call, watched in fear.
