Hyderabad: With the help of video footage
aired on TV channels, Hyderabad police have identified 12
persons behind the attack on teachers from Andhra and

"So far 12 out of those behind the incident have been
identified and efforts were underway to trace and arrest them.
All of them are absconding," East Zone DCP M C Laddha said.

located in the OU campus and nearby areas for four times to
nab them, he said adding six police teams have been formed to
the accused, who are believed to fled the city.

channels (as some of the teachers were chased and beaten up by
the protesting activists) enabling us to identify the
attackers," the police officer added.
