Hyderabad: A student of MCA burnt himself to death on the Osmania University campus late on Friday in support of Telangana State.
Police said the charred body of T. Eshan Reddy was found in the bushes near the Osmania University library building early Saturday morning. A pair of burnt slippers were also found at the spot.
A suicide note purportedly written by him congratulated the winners of by-polls in Telangana area and asked people to continue the fight till the separate Telangana dream was fulfilled.
"I wished before Maisamma (deity) 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," he said.
He also congratulated the people of Telangana and Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao for ensuring the re-election of 12 legislators.
The suicide note also mentioned the names of prominent leaders of Congress and Telugu Desam parties and appealed to the pro-Telangana activists to declare them as traitors.
Through the note he also appealed to the TRS chief, K. Chandrasekhara Rao to carry out the agitation with regard to Babli dam with sincerity.
Tension prevailed on the campus as the students were resisting police attempts to shift the body to the mortuary. Ishan Reddy, in his suicide note, expressed his wish that autopsy should not be conducted on his body. He also wanted his body to be taken in a procession from the university to Telangana martyrs' memorial near the assembly.
Ishan Reddy completed his B Tech from St. Ann's Institute of Technology and was undergoing coaching for GRE TOEFL exams.
He is the fourth student to commit suicide on the Osmania University campus this year.
In March, Sai Kumar, a second year B Tech student of Osmania University, had ended his life by hanging in his hostel room as he was upset over the delay in formation of a separate state.
On Feb 20, a Class 12 student had immolated himself at the main entrance of Osmania University in full public view during a protest by university students.
In January, a MCA student had self-immolated on the campus.
Parties fighting for a separate Telangana claim that over 300 students and youth have committed suicide in the region since protests began in November last year.
