Protests At Hyderabad University After Suicide By Scholar Thrown From Hostel
There’s tension after a student’s alleged suicide at a university in Hyderabad. Vermula Rohit, 22, supposedly hanged himself in the Hyderabad Central University at a hostel.
A group of pupils supposedly sat with his body refusing to allow a funeral unless the university authorities heard them outside. A police team came this morning and took the body away. Eight students have been arrested.
Was discovered dead on Sunday.
Rohit had also been suspended from all student actions after he and other dalit scholars who are members of the Ambedkar union, were accused of attacking an activist of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad or ABVP, a union linked to the BJP.
According to his buddy Venkat, Rohit, who was active in the Ambedkar union of Dalit students, was “heartbroken” that his requests for an appointment with the Vice Chancellor had been ignored even though he’d been living in the open for days.
” Even Dalit professors who came to meet with us, supported the Vice Chancellor rather than us,” Rohit apparently told Venkat before in the day.
