Home Minister P. Sabitha Reddy has appealed to the people of all regions in the State, particularly leaders of political parties and students, to exercise restraint over the contents of the Justice Srikrishna Committee report and extend cooperation to the government in maintenance of law and order. Speaking to the media here on Thursday, Ms Reddy said the Srikrishna Committee's report did not constitute a final decision.

Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, now away at Delhi, kept himself posted with the details about the law and order situation in the State. The DGP, K. Aravinda Rao, is stated to have briefed him about the restive atmosphere in the Osmania and Kakatiya university campuses.
