Hyderabad, Mar 10 (ANI): Another student of Osmania University in Hyderabad committed suicide on Tuesday to press for the creation of a separate Telangana state.

M Saikumar, a B Tech second year student, reportedly hanged himself in his hostel room with a rope after attending classes in the morning.

His fellow student saw him hanging, through a window, and immediately informed police.

Saikumar was declared brought dead in the hospital. Police said that a suicide note purportedly written by him has been recovered near the body, which states that he sacrificed his life for Telangana.

Pro-Telangana activists have been agitating since December 23, after the central government went back on its promise saying more consultations were required with all parties of Andhra Pradesh.

The agitations have resulted in series of violent incidents in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, as well as some other parts of the state.

The Telangana region is spread over 10 northern districts of Andhra Pradesh.

Political analysts feel that creation of the new state of Telangana may fuel social unrest and separatist demands in other states. (ANI)
