Tension prevailed in the town on Friday night as protestors, who continued sit-in for more than 12 hours, set afire the office of Satya Cable Network which is owned by Satyanarayana, who is also a state minister. They also pelted stones on fire engines which rushed to the scene to douse the fire.
The mob also damaged the vehicle of the police superintendent who had reached there to take stock of the situation.
Alleging that Satyanarayana did not stall the central government's decision, the protestors also attacked the house of a relative of Satyanarayana and a school owned by another family member.
Earlier in the day, the protestors also targeted a college and a lodge owned by Satyanarayana. They also laid siege to his residence and clashed with police.
Police fired tear gas shells to disperse the mob, which damaged five police vehicles. Three protestors and a policeman were injured in the violence.
