Government Orders (GOs) were issued by the state government for withdrawal of prosecution against about 40 people, including several prominent leaders of the pro- Telangana students, in connection with the cases registered at the Osmania University police station here.

The state government had earlier said that the cases registered against the pro-Telangana students would be lifted.
TRS MLA K Easwar welcomed the government`s move to lift the cases against the students and sought that the cases against other Telangana supporters be also removed.
