HRD min forms committee to look into scholar's suicide at HCU

Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry has constituted a two member fact finding team to look into the matter related to the suicide of a research scholar in Hyderabad Central University.

According to official sources, the team led by Shakila T Shamsu, OSD in the ministry, and comprising another Deputy Secretary level officer Surat Singh, will go to Hyderabad today to look into the entire matter and submit the report to the HRD ministry.

The body of V Rohit, a Dalit PhD scholar who was found hanging at the Central University's hostel room in the campus yesterday, was sent for post mortem amid protests from fellow students this morning.

Rohit was among the five research scholars who were suspended by Hyderabad Central University (HCU) in August last year and also one of the accused in the case of assault on a student leader.

The suspension was revoked later.

The five research scholars were suspended from the hostel for rest of their study period for allegedly attacking an ABVP leader.

Meanwhile, some student unions have called for an educational institutions bandh today.
