Osmania University Students Protest After Student Hangs Himself in Hostel

A 20-year-old student of Hyderabad's Osmania University allegedly committed suicide on Saturday by hanging himself, triggering protests on campus. Murali - reportedly a physics topper - was a first-year student of MSc in the university.

We students are extremely sorry for the death of Osmania University's Murali, who took the extreme step of suicide.

Murali, a first-generation student, hailed from Dulapur village in Jagadevpur Mandal, Medak district. "Therefore, I have chose to end my life", Murali wrote in his suicide note, according to The Times of India report.

"I am unable to continue my studies". I never wanted to fail in exams.

The bandh followed a call given by the Telangana Joint Action Committee (TJAC).

Vladimir Putin will seek reelection as Russian president
Russian President Vladimir Putin said he intends to seek re-election in March's election, The Associated Press reported. Putin served two terms as president from 2000 to 2008 before becoming the country's prime minister.

The university students, according to Hindustan Times, suspected that the suicide note was fake, since the handwriting in the note did not match with Murali's. Political analysts said, with a massive rally planned against the TRS government on Monday over unemployment, politicians found ready ammunition to pin the government by linking the suicide to jobs.

Vice-Chancellor V Ramchandran and DCP East Shashidhar Raju visited Maneru hostel even as students demanded Rs 50 lakh ex-gratia for the family of the deceased.

"After being confined for more than three hours in the OU police station, they released us on Monday morning", the two journalists said.

Devender Reddy, a senior journalist with a regional channel, and video journalist Praveen, who were there to cover the suicide incident, were also detained by the police on Sunday night. Shouting "KCR down, down", students burnt effigy of the chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in front of Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad.
