Hyderabad, Jul 31: An engineering student of Osmania University committed suicide demanding the formation of separate Telangana state.
The charred body of student, Ishan Reddy, was found near the university library on Saturday Jul 31. Suicide note written by him was found near the body.
In suicide note he wrote that he was fulfilling his 'wish' as all 12 legislators, who had resigned for the cause of Telangana, were re-elected.
"I wished before Maisamma (God) that I will sacrifice my life if D Srinivas and other Congress candidates are defeated in the elections and now that they are defeated I am fulfilling my wish," Ishan Reddy wrote in the suicide note.
Ishan, who hailed from Medak district, also wanted that Congress and TDP leaders like D Srinivas, Jana Reddy, Damodar Reddy, Sridhar Babu, K Venkat Reddy, Kadiam Srihari, E Dayakar Rao and N Janardhan Reddy be declared traitors of Telangana and hanged publicly.
Ishan is the fourth student to commit suicide in the Osmania University campus in 2010. Earlier one B Tech student, Class 12 student and another MCA student committed suicide for the formation of a separate state.
Tension prevailed on the campus as the students were resisting police attempts to shift the body to the mortuary.
