Police fired at least 20 rounds of tear gas shells to disperse a stone-pelting mob near a flyover adjacent to Osmania University campus this evening.

The fresh round of violence erupted in Tarnaka area after city police successfully foiled the attempt of the students to lay a siege to Andhra Pradesh Assembly in support their demand for a separate Telangana state.

Students indulged in heavy stone - pelting at police raising slogans "police go back".

Five persons reportedly sustained injuries in the stone - pelting but there was no official confirmation of this.
