    On Monday, State BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar and Huzurabad MLA Eatala Rajender were arrested along with several senior leaders when they attempted to lay siege to the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) office at Nampally. The leaders were demanding a judicial probe by a sitting high court judge into the question paper leak of various recruitment tests conducted by the commission recently.

    The protest began with Sanjay and hundreds of party activists assembling at the Gun Park to pay homage to the Telangana Martyrs. However, as they were getting ready to leave for the TSPSC office, the police obstructed them, stating that there was no permission to stage any dharna or protest. This led to tension between the two sides, with party activists attempting to break the police barricades and slogans being raised demanding justice.

    The police later made a lathi-charge to disperse the protestors, resulting in some BJP leaders receiving injuries. They were shifted to Care Hospital, and the police later arrested Bandi and Rajender, forcibly bundling them into a van. The BJP activists attempted to prevent the police van from moving, but the police arrested all and shifted them to the police station.

    In protest against the arrests, BJP activists and Mahila Morcha activists staged a sit-in before the Assembly building and raised slogans against the police. The activists, including those of ABVP, burnt effigies of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao at several places in protest against the arrest of Bandi.
