ABVP, AISF Members Taken into Custody at Osmania University
ABVP members objecting AISF members protesting against JNUSU president Kanhaiya’s arrest led to an argument.
At least 14 members of ABVP and AISF were taken into custody at Osmania University in Hyderabad after they got into a heated argument over a planned protest against JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar’s arrest in Delhi.
AISF members had gathered in front of Arts College on the campus for burning an effigy of the Central government to protest Kumar’s arrest, demand his immediate release and drop charge of sedition against him.
But a group of ABVP members objected to it, which led to a row. The members of two organisations almost came to blows before the police stepped in.
Police immediately intervened and separated students and took them away... there was no clash... situation is completely peaceful.OU police station’s Inspector Ashok Reddy
Ten members of ABVP and four of AISF were taken into preventive custody, he said. Kumar, a member of CPI’s student wing AISF, was arrested in connection with an event against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru. There were allegations that anti-India slogans were raised during the event.
