On Friday morning, an uproar was in full swing at Secunderabad station. At the railway station, horrifying scenes were witnessed. A man was shot dead in police firing in Secunderabad, trains were burnt up in flames, and private and public vehicles were attacked as highways, and railway stations turned into a battleground amid burgeoning protests against Agnipath, the contentious defense recruitment scheme.


Food stalls and other shops on all platforms were looted and set on fire. Some of the protesters were seen with sticks and hammers. When the protesters tried to enter electric locomotive engines, railway officials cut the entire railway station's power.


After four hours of dharna and attacks, the number of agitators significantly came down. But those present at the railway station continued to protest on the railway tracks. The police tried to convince them to call off the protest, but they refused to budge.


The police then continued their talks with the agitators, surrounded them, and around 5.30 pm, started taking them into custody and shifted them to the police station.


Due to protests in the city against the Agnipath scheme, the Hyderabad Metro Rail had suspended all operations for a few hours till evening.


By late evening, Operation All Clear became successful, and the railway authorities restored rail operations.
