Protests by Telangana protagonists continued most part of the day at the Minister’s Quarters at Banjara Hills where the Seemandhra Congress leaders met on Thursday to discuss their strategy over the Telangana issue.

 Students and Telangana activists came in small groups at regular intervals keeping the police on their toes throughout the meeting while minister Danam Nagender, once again, proved his mettle by chasing and nabbing a Telangana student who threw stones on his vehicle.

 Small groups of students and youngsters, under the aegis of OUJAC, Telangana Jagruti and others, tried to break the heavily-barricaded road towards Minister’s Quarters from morning itself but were prevented by the police.

 They were bundled into waiting police vans and shifted to police stations and let off later.

 Even as the protests were continuing, a group of youngsters noticed the convoy of minister Danam Nagender passing through Road No 12 to Telangana Bhavan, the headquarters of TRS.

 One of them hurled a stone causing minor damage to the vehicle.

 Nagender alighted from his vehicle and chased away the group, identified the youth and finally caught him even as the youngster ran into a nearby flat.

 The minister allegedly roughed up the youngster and handed him over to the police.

 Meanwhile, the supporters of Nagender filed a complaint with the police alleging that the youngsters had tried to attack the minister.

 A Telangana advocate also filed a complaint with the Banjara Hills police alleging that the associates of Nagender attacked them.

 No cases have been registered.

 Early in the morning, Telangana activists also tried to storm the house of minister P Vishwarup at Sanjeeva Reddy Nagar.
