Osmania University in Hyderabad saw a continuation of protests on Saturday as student unions organized a massive dharna against the TSPSC paper leak. The tension on campus led to the police detaining ABVP activists who attempted to take out a rally from OU campus to Indira Park. Congress leaders, including TPCC president A Revanth Reddy, were also house arrested and prevented from attending the unemployedDeeksha organized by some student unions. The police had taken student leaders into preventive custody when they attempted to take out a rally to protest against the TSPSC exam paper leak.
At around noon, a group of ABVP activists took out a rally from Arts College building in the campus and intended to march towards Dharna Chowk at Indira Park where the BJP was holding a dharna. As there was no permission for the rally, a huge police force was deployed at the campus. The police stopped and detained the ABVP activists and shifted them to different police stations. Anticipating law and order problems, police forces camped outside the residences of Congress leader Revanth Reddy and other senior leaders. The Congress leaders were not allowed to come out of their homes until evening.
