Two former University of Hyderabad students held for allegedly conspiring to kill the vice chancellor

Two former students of the University of Hyderabad, Ankala Prudhviraj and Chandan Misra, were arrested by Eastern Godavari Police on Friday for allegedly hatching a plot to kill the university vice-chancellor, V Appa Rao. It is reported that the two were attracted towards leftist ideologies and had joined Maoists.

As per reports, the two were arrested by police when they were returning from the forests after meeting Yapa Narayana alias Haribhushan, the secretary of Telangana State Committee of CPI (Maoist). As per police, they had met Haribhushan in January 2018 with help of a Maoist courier where he explained party’s principles and ideologies to them and asked them to recruit maximum students from the varsity.

During the discussion, the police say, Rohith Vemula’s suicide was discussed and it was decided that if Appa Rao is killed in the name of Maoist party, may students will join the party. The two former students were also promised better cadre in the party on the successful assassination of the vice chancellor.
