The proponents of separate Telangana state on Thursday intensified their protests as part of the ongoing general strike that began on September 13.
Hawkers stopped delivering newspapers as part of the 'Sakala Januma Samme' (strike by all sections of people).
Telangana Political Joint Action Committee (JAC) convener M Kodandaram was taken into custody in Secunderabad where he was participating in a pro-Telangana demonstration.
The Telangana supporters reached the police station where the JAC convener was kept and raised slogans against the state government and police.
They also continued to hold rallies, sit-ins at various places elsewhere in the region.
The supporters of separate statehood also announced plans to question public representatives for not resigning in support of Telanagana.
