HYDERABAD: Six college students, punch drunk and riding two-wheelers, created terror in colonies near Osmania University in the wee hours of Tuesday.

Armed with sticks, they broke the windshields of 12 cars parked in the streets of Green Hills and Ravindra Nagar.

They also hurled stones on the vehicles which were parked by the owners outside their homes.

At Swati Hotel near Habsiguda, the inebriated youth saw a parked mini-van of a travel company and pelted it with stones.

The vehicle’s cleaner, Tirupati, who was sleeping in the house, rushed out on hearing the commotion and tried to stop them.

“The resistance only made the youngsters more savage and assault Tirupati,’’ Osmania University police said.

Alerted by locals, police launched a hunt for the rampaging younth and nabbed two of them at their homes after tracking them down with the help of their vehicle registration numbers.

The two bikes were seized.

Search is on for the other miscreants.

Cases under Sections 307 (attempt to murder), 427 (mischief) and 506 (criminal intimidation) were registered against the accused.
