Another UoH scholar ends life
One more research scholar of the University of Hyderabad (UoH) here has committed suicide on Saturday reportedly depressed over lack of prospects for the field of his study.

Vishal Tandon, a native of Mumbai, was pursuing his PhD in the Centre for Women Studies, on ‘Muslim Masculinities in Crisis: A Queer Reading of Hindi Films’. He has already completed two years of research.

Tandon leaped to death from the 14th floor of his apartment Aparna Sarovar located near the university campus.

Chandanagar police said Tandon has sent an e mail to his sister in Mumbai that his career was not shaping well.  Sensing trouble, she immediately alerted a common friend but by then Vishal had ended his life.

The suicidal death of Rohith Vemula, a research scholar on campus in 2016, drew national attention over a series of such deaths on campus owing to prejudice and lack of peer support.
