HYDERABAD: Local people and passersby had some tense moments on Friday noon when an unknown miscreant lobbed stones at a city bus belonging to HCU depot, demanding he be allowed to withdraw money from a bank. The incident took place at Rahul Colony under Golconda police limits in the city on Friday.

Traffic movement on Tolichowki and Mehdipatnam stretch came to a standstill for half-an-hour after irate customers staged dharna on the road.
The customers raised slogans against demonetisation and demanded the banks to return their money deposited in the bank account.

Around 11.30 am, customers were standing in long queues in front of the State Bank of India.
Meanwhile, the bank staff put up ‘no cash’ boards stating there was no cash for withdrawal.
This resulted in heated arguments being exchanged between customers and the bank staff.
Meanwhile, an unknown miscreant lobbed stones on a city bus belonging to HCU depot.
“In the incident, mirrors of the bus were damaged partially,’’ said Golconda Inspector Syed Fayaz.
Immediately, police dispersed the mob by taking into custody some customers. However, later they were let off.
