Normal life was paralysed in Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh for the second consecutive day on Thursday due to bandh called by Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) to protest the police cane-charge on students in Osmania University here.
The Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (APSRTC) has suspended its services in Telangana districts like Nalgonda, Medak and Karimnagar.
The APSRTC, however, partially resumed its services here, providing some relief to commuters. It suspended its services on Wednesday.
Schools, colleges, shops and business establishments in Telangana region remained closed.
The JAC called for the bandh to protest cane-charge and firing of teargas shells on students in Osmania University, the nerve-centre of the statehood agitation, on Wednesday.
About 50 students and several policemen, including an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), were injured in the clashes between police and students in the campus.
The JAC, however, exempted a religious congregation taking place at Madaram in Telangana from the shutdown.
Accordingly, the APSRTC was operating bus services to Medaram for the convenience of devotees.
