The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) also staged a protest at Pragathi Bhavan, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao camp office in Begumpet, demanding justice to the intermediate students who failed, and few of them who committed suicide.
Heavy police force was deployed at the camp office after which they shifted the ABVP members to various police stations from the spot. Police brought the situation under control.
Over three lakh students reportedly failed in the intermediate exams conducted by the BIE in the state. This led to protests by students and parents alleging large-scale discrepancies in the examination process. (ANI)
