Hyderabad, Mar.22 (ANI): The Hyderabad Police on Tuesday evicted the protesting students of University of Hyderabad from outside the lodge of Vice Chancellor Appa Rao Podile, who rejoined work after nearly two months on leave.

The protesting students even pelted stones at the police officials, who tried to evacuate them. A few police officials were also injured in the incident.

Meanwhile, the non teaching employees of the varsity have threatened to go on hunger strike demanding action against culprits of attack on VC lodge, which took place in the morning.

Appa Rao had gone on leave on January 24 amid massive protests on the campus over the suicide of Rohith Vemula.

Rohith, 26, had committed suicide by hanging himself in the University of Hyderabad’s campus in January. He was earlier suspended from the university hostel in August last year by the administration for allegedly attacking an ABVP leader. (ANI)
