Osmania University Inspector Ashok Reddy told DC, "We arrested 22 students under several sections of the IPC, including damaging government property". Arunank, a member of Democratic Students Union in the campus alleged that the Telangana Government has been neglecting the development of the University resulting in degrading conditions of education in the University. The students alleged that Murali was anxious that the government would not keep its word to fill vacancies. "Murali's suicide is the first incident after the state was formed". The budget released by the University is only enough for paying the salaries and pensions of the employees and the students education is being affected. They demanded monetary compensation for Murali's family.
