AP Govt Moves SC against HC Directive to Remove Forces from Osmania

Against the High Court direction to move paramilitary force out of Osmania University, Andhra Pradesh government has moved the Supreme Court, reported PTI.

The apex court posted the matter for hearing tomorrow, asking the state go come out with the answer as to who allowed deployment of paramilitary forces in the campus, report said.

“Our concern is about the installation of tents and barricades in the university campus. It does not show a good sign,” a Bench comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justices SH Kapadia and Aftab Alam was quoted as saying as the state government mentioned its petition for urgent hearing and stay of the Andhra Pradesh High Court order.

Appearing for the state government, senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi attacked the February 16 order, arguing that High Court cannot order the removal of para-military forces from the campus which is the ‘hot bed’ of law and order problem during the ongoing agitation for a separate Telangana state, said report

He submitted the police and para-military forces are there in the campus since December and everyday one or the other incidents are taking place due to the agitation for Telangana.

The senior advocate said stationing of para-military forces was necessary as the state government cannot meet the requirment of force for maintenance of law and order.
