This is the second incident after a fresh agitation was launched by TRS demanding seperate statehood.

On December 1, a constable had committed suicide by shooting himself in support of Telangana at Kamareddy town in Nizamabad district.

In the suicide note, the constable wrote--"Jai Telangana" and stated "I am dying for the cause of separate Telangana."
