Hyderabad: An investigation panel that looked into the suicide of Hyderabad Central University scholar Rohith Vemula concluded that the varsity administration and its vice-chancellor P Appa Rao were not responsible for his death.
“The report has exonerated the authorities and the vice-chancellor,” the source said.
Vemula’s death in January led to widespread protests against the then HRD minister Smriti Irani. Agitating students said Vemula had been pushed to suicide by a suspension ordered by the V-C upon a prodding from Union minister Bandaru Dattatrayya. (INN)
