Introduction

An alarming video of a female student being forcefully dragged by two women police officers in Telangana has prompted a swift inquiry by Cyberabad police. The incident occurred during a student protest against land acquisition for a High Court complex, escalating tensions at Professor Jayashankar Telangana State Agriculture University (PJTSAU).

The video captured the moment when about 50 ABVP activists from Osmania University joined the ongoing student protest at PJTSAU against the land allotment for the proposed High Court complex. Two uniformed police women were seen chasing and dragging a female student leader by her hair, sparking widespread condemnation.

Government Order Challenge

The student protests, demanding the revocation of Government Order (GO-55) issued on December 31, which allocated 100 acres of land from PJTSAU for the High Court complex, have resulted in suspended classes. Students insist on their refusal to return until the government reconsiders the land acquisition decision.

Cyberabad police have initiated an inquiry into the incident, acknowledging the video’s improper actions by certain police personnel. A detailed investigation aims to determine the appropriate actions against those involved in the controversial dragging incident.

Outcry on Social Media

The viral video triggered outrage on social media platforms, prompting MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha to urge the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to take swift and strict action. The incident has raised questions about the police’s aggressive tactics against peaceful student protesters.

Politician Involvement

Former CPI(M) MLA Julakanti Ranga Reddy and SFI activists joined the protest, with additional support pledged by sitting legislators and other politicians. The demonstration has gained momentum with a diverse group of participants advocating for the protection of agricultural research land.

Environmental Concerns

Students emphasize the ecological impact of the proposed High Court complex on the earmarked 100 acres, urging the government to identify barren land for the construction instead. The preservation of biodiversity and ecological balance is at the forefront of their demands.

Conclusion

The dragging incident has fueled a broader protest against the land acquisition, involving various stakeholders and garnering support from political figures. As the inquiry progresses, the focus remains on addressing the students’ concerns and ensuring the protection of vital agricultural research land.
