HCU bows to Campus Outrage: Rohith Vemula Suicide

21 Jan 2016

Suspension of five students including Rohith who took his life revoked


About an hour back, about 3.30 pm on Thursday January 21, 2016 agitating students if HCU were informed that the highest body if the university, Hyderabad Central University (HCU), the Executive Council has revoked the suspension of five students including Rohith Vemula who committed suicide on January 17. The text of the resolution can be read here.

Agitating students see this hurriedly taken decision as a response to the cross country protests against what is being increasingly viewed as the institutional murder of Rohith. 

Rohiths scathing letter to Vice Chancellor Appa Rao dated December 18, 2015 is a precursor to what happened.

Agitating students representing the Ambedkar Students Association and the Students Federation of India see this as a placatory measure meant to diffuse the demands for  fair probe. The conduct of the Vice Chancellor and ministers of the Modi government in the targeting of these students has raised serious questions of improper exercise of executive power.
