HYDERABAD: A former Home Guard, who had earlier climbed a tower at LB Stadium, created a similar scene by climbing the AIR tower opposite the Assembly on Monday morning demanding his reinstatement into service. The person is still on the tower till last reports came in. This is also the second instance where a man climbed the tower in the AIR building.

Though no one was sure when the former Home Guard, Rambabu climbed the tower, he started to attract the attention of media and passers-by soon after the Assembly session began on Monday morning.

Policemen reached the place and tried to convince him to climb down but Rambabu did not budge.

He is one among the hundreds of Home Guards removed from service after police officials came to know about irregularities in their recruitment. Even as police assured that his demand would be looked into, Rambabu demanded an assurance from a senior official.

Rambabu’s parents also reached the place and tried to convince him but he did not relent and stuck to his demand. One of his brothers was mediating between police and his sibling and supplying him food and water on the tower.
