A post-graduate student committed suicide at Mancherial town in Adilabad district on Monday apparently distressed over the delay in formation of a Telangana State. Nayakini Naresh, 24, a second year MA Hindi student of Osmania University who hailed from Chintaguda (K) of Kagaznagar mandal ended his life by jumping under a train.
According to Bellampally Government Railway Police Sub Inspector Premraj, a suicide note was found on the body.
The note, addressed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi, urged them to carve out the new State immediately.
Naresh was reportedly ailing from a urinary tract infection and jaundice since a few months. He believed that treatment for the diseases was possible only after he got a job.
Hyderabad Staff Reporter reports:
Stopping of a rally, taken out by students mourning the death of Naresh, by police triggered tension on Osmania University campus.
While the students, angered over their procession being stopped, threw stones at the police, the latter fired teargas shells to disperse them from the B.Ed. college-RTC hospital stretch. The clash lasted over an hour at different places on the campus.
Initially, the students assembled at Arts College and planned to go in a procession towards NCC gate. Changing the plan, they suddenly headed for the OU police station and squatted on the road, raising pro-Telangana slogans.
As the police prevented them from surging towards the English and Foreign Languages University gate, the students gathered near the compound wall opposite B.Ed. college and hurled stones at police teams deployed there and burnt tyres on the road.
