HYDERABAD: Two leaders of the Osmania University Students’ Joint Action Committee, who were part of the recent protests against the government’s proposal to acquire OU lands, have allegedly been threatened by a TRS legislator.
According to police, Daruvu Anjanna of Jeedimetla and Durgam Bhasker of OU campus went missing on Tuesday following alleged threats from the MLA. A group of OUJAC students lodged a complaint with the OU police and alleged that TRS leaders might have kidnapped Bhasker.
Anjanna’s wife Sunitha lodged a complaint with the Jeedimetla police stating that her husband had gone missing. “Anjanna received a threatening call from a TRS leader. He left home stating he would return but did not turn up,” she said. Hours later, Anjanna surfaced and approached the police with the same complaint against the MLA.
The police promised to look into the complaints and said they would register cases after thorough verification. Bhasker’s whereabouts are still unknown. It is said that Anjanna and Bhasker had played an important role in organising a Dhoom Dham protest on the OU campus a few days back. This allegedly infuriated a TRS MLA, who is known for his Dhoom Dham programmes. Police suspect Bhasker might also have gone underground fearing for his life.
