Student organisations of the Osmania University today gave a call for an "OU Bandh" on Tuesday.
The call was given condemning the "attack by the police on student activists at the behest of the Vice Chancellor of the university".
The activists alleged that the VC had prompted the police to attack them on the 23rd of this month when they were staging a peaceful dharna demanding that the university authorities hold Ph D admissions in the old mode as also take steps for the provision of basic amenities on the university campus.
They said that several students were injured in the police attack.
They claimed that several students were losing their UGC fellowships due to the delay in the Ph D admissions.
