She said, In the aftermath of a young life cut short, I express my grief over death of Rohith. A group of students allegedly attacked another student, we have ascertained that this is not a Dalit vs non-Dalit confrontation.This is not a Dalit vs non-Dalit issue as some people are trying to portray.
After suspension on disciplinary grounds, The students challenged the order of suspension from hostel, HC refused to put a stay on the order.They are some media debates which claim a particular suicide note. We requested a copy from local police.This suicide note does not mention an MP, any University official or an organisation.
