Students of a law college from Tamil Nadu went on a rampage over payment-related issue at a toll plaza in Andhra Pradesh’s Tirupati on Monday and attacked the booth staff.
The incident took place when the students, who were returning from after an exam, was stopped at the toll plaza after one of their vehicles failed to cross the booth as FASTag payment did not work, NDTV reported.
