The bandh observed in districts of Telangana region to protest the firing on those supporting the statehood issue in Mahbubabad town passed off peacefully on Saturday, barring stray incidents of damage to properties, police said.

Apart from resorting to road blockades and burning buses, pro-Telangana activists held dharnas, took out rallies and burnt effigies of Congress MP Jaganmohan Reddy.

Pro-Telangana agitators enforced bandh in six districts even as police took 897 persons into preventive custody and arrested five persons, police said.
