A number of incidents recorded across the Pearl City claimed that the Citizenship Amendment Act’s flare touched Hyderabad. Though the agitations were rife for the past three days across the city, the protests took a violent turn with police taking hundreds of students into custody from the early hours for Thursday. The students of Osmania University who have been an active part in the protests reached the main roads, raising slogans against the Modi-led government. A student group has burnt a copy of the CAA reminding the central government to take back the Act. The Hyderabad police on the other hand, detained hundreds of students from various universities stating that there was no permission to hold any form of protest.
Joint Commissioner of Police, Central Zone, Hyderabad, P Viswaprasad stated that they have rejected all the pleas which sought permission for rallies and protests. It was also reported that the police have detained six women students from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences in Hyderabad who were dragged out of their Uber cab near the Exhibition Grounds in Nampally. The detained students continued their silent protest outside the Ramgopalpet police station.
Meanwhile, people have been questioning Telangana Chief minister KCR and his son minister KTR for their double standards on social media. While the TRS party supported the Citizenship Amendment in the house, denying permission for rallies and protests is being flayed. Citizens are asking why they should be denied peaceful protests.
