Hyderabad: CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury on Wednesday demanded the immediate release of students and faculty members of University of Hyderabad who were arrested in connection with the attack on Vice-Chancellor Appa Rao Podile's official residence.

Yechury, in a letter written to Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, also alleged that police showed high-handedness as the students were deprived of water, access to Wi-Fi, and even food supply to hostel messes was stopped. Cyberabad police today arrested 25 students and two teachers in connection with Tuesday’s incidents.

Most people in the country were ‘aghast’ at the manner in which such brutal assault was mounted on the university community by the Telangana police, the CPM leader said, adding he was forced to write the letter as there was no response from the Chief Minister despite repeated phone calls and messages.

"Following the stoppage of water connection, access to Wi-Fi, food supplies to the hostel messes, the students themselves organised the preparation of food for the hostel inmates. Today, all these facilities were attacked by the police and the Vice Chancellor has reportedly shut down the hostels," he said.Telangana State government should act first against the Vice-Chancellor who is named in the FIR filed with regard to dalit research scholar Rohith Vemula's suicide, he added.
