Lawyers belonging to the Telangana region, who have been in the news for their protests against the Srikrishna Committee lawyers had a bitter experience at the Indira Park here on Saturday, leaving one of them injured with a hit on the head.

After the Srikrishna Panel left for New Delhi, the lawyers decided to target the Telugu Desam Party on the contentious Telangana issue. They gathered at Indira Park, where the TDP leaders, along with leaders of the Left parties were staging a dharna on the rising prices of essential commodities and started sloganeering. They raised slogans against the TDP chief, demanding that he spell out a clear stand on the Telangana issue and also demanded his resignation from the State Assembly.

TDP men at the gathering got incensed on seeing their leader become the target of the lawyers. It took the persuasive powers of the TDP chief to restrain his men from attacking the lawyers.

Mr Naidu also appealed to the lawyers not to aggravate the situation by continuing their jibes at him as the protest against price rise was for the benefit of the common man.

But the adamant lawyers refused to see reason and continued with their sloganeering for about 15 minutes.  It was a bit too much for the irate TDP activists who physically lashed out at the lawyers and chased them away from the scene. The TDP activists only spared the female lawyers. In the melee one lawyer was hit on the head while others suffered minor injuries. 

The police swiftly swung into action and arrested some TDP activists and some lawyers.
