Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya
Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya Accused Of Role In Hyderabad Student's Suicide
 INDIA , 18-January-2016  4:37:55 AM
Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya has been named in a police case amid anger at a Hyderabad University over the suicide of a research scholar who was found hanging yesterday in a hostel he was banned from two weeks ago. Education Minister Smriti Irani has sent a two-member team to investigate what happened

1Rohith Vemula, 26, a doctorate student at the Hyderabad Central University, wrote in a suicide note: "No one is responsible for my act of killing myself... Do not shed tears for me. Know that I am happy dead than being alive."

2After Rohith was found hanging, a group of students sat with his body all night, demanding cases against the minister as well as the Vice Chancellor. The protests intensified this morning after a police team took away the body for post mortem and arrested eight students.

3Bandaru Dattatreya faces charges of abetting Rohith's suicide. Students allege that his letter to Education Minister Smriti Irani in August led to "discriminatory" action taken against him and four other Dalit scholars. He has rubbished the charge.

4Rohith had slept in a tent outside the campus gates for days, along with the others who had also been denied access to the hostel.

5The five, all members of the Ambedkar union, had been accused of attacking an activist of the BJP-linked union Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad or ABVP in August, allegedly during a protest against the execution of 1993 Bombay blasts convict Yakub Memon.

6The university cleared them in an initial inquiry, but reversed its decision. Students blame it on Bandaru Dattatreya's letter to Smriti Irani calling for action and alleging that the university had become a "den of casteist, extremist and anti-national politics."

7On December 21, the five scholars were barred from the hostel, the mess and most common areas except their classroom and research lab. Their friends called it social boycott.
