The Osmania University Teachers association on Monday condemned the brutal lathi charge by police on the innocent students in Maneru Hostel on the campus during wee hours of Monday.

ACP J Narsiah told Deccan Chronicle, "We gave them permission to give condolences to the 21-year-old student and not to make a fuss".

The most important factor, I think, because of which students decide to quit and even sometimes commit suicide, is unemployment.
