Back home, pro-Telangana activists today hurled stones at private buses and damaged at least 10 of these in Nalgonda district after forcibly stopping vehicles moving from coastal Andhra towards Hyderabad, police said. Some activists were injured when police assaulted them with batons at Nakrekal while one police official also sustained critical injuries in stone pelting by the mobs. There were no reports of any injuries to the passengers. Demanding separate statehood to Telangana, activists also destroyed a police vehicle.

Earlier, the protestors stopped the buses at three places after they entered Telangana. Hundreds of passengers were stranded as the buses were stopped at the border in view of threats from groups fighting for a separate Telangana state. Over 50 private buses coming to Hyderabad from Vijayawada, about 300 km from here, and other towns in coastal Andhra were stopped by authorities at Garikapadu checkpost on the border between Krishna and Nalgonda districts.
Hundreds of passengers had been stranded from 4.30 a.m. as private bus operators alleged that the Nalgonda police had refused to provide them an escort.
