ABVP student’s medical report contradicts assault by Rohith Vemula

Published

Questions are being raised on Hyderabad University student Rohith Vemula’s alleged assault on an ABVP student  Nandanam Susheel Kumar. ABVP student’s medical report  contradicts claims that he was assaulted.

Nandanam Susheel Kumar had alleged that he was beaten by 40 members of the Ambedkar Students’ Association including Rohith inside his hostel room on  August 3 and he was admitted to a private hospital later that night for an appendicitis surgery.But the report of Archana Hospital in Madinaguda, where he was operated, says he was treated for acute appendicitis on August 7.
The report says that the 26-year-old was admitted with abdominal pain. There is no mention of any external injury in the medical report.
Nandanam’s father approached Union Minister of State for Labour and Employment Bandaru Dattatreya after which he sent a letter to the Union HRD Ministry.

The discharge report of Archana Hospitals says: “Blunt trauma abdomen with acute appendicitis.” It also mentions an injury on his left shoulder. Three days later on August 7, Susheel Kumar was operated upon for appendicitis.

Susheel Kumar had given a written apology for his comments on Facebook.

Four months after the alleged attack on Susheel Kumar, the Hyderabad Central University suspended Rohith and four other students, and banned them from the hostel, cafeteria and other common areas on campus.

It has now emerged that following union minister Bandaru Dattatreya’s letter to Irani in August, the ministry wrote five letters between September and November seeking a response from Hyderabad University over the minister’s letter. Mint has reviewed all six letters.
Dattatreya, in his 17 August letter, referred to clashes between two groups of students over the hanging of 1993 Mumbai bombing suspect Yakub Memon.

Hyderabad University, a Central University located in Hyderabad has, in the recent past, become a den of casteist, extremist and anti-national politics. This could be visualized from the fact that when Yakub Menon (sic) was hanged, a dominant students union, that is Ambedkar Students’ Association has held protests against the execution,” Dattatreya wrote in his letter to Irani.

Dattatreya, in his letter to HRD Minister Smriti Irani, said that the Hyderabad university “has in the recent past, become a den of casteist, extremist and anti-national politics”.

Susheel  said “My father submitted a letter to the Minister detailing the attack on me on August 3, explaining why I was not safe on the campus and asking university officials to take action.

India China Border Sikkim

New Delhi, May 27 : Indian Army Commanders’ Conference kicked off in New Delhi on Wednesday wherein discussion over China frontier in Sikkim, Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh would be done at great length. The conference was planned much before the tension with China in eastern Ladakh region.

Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane is presiding over the conference. The top commanders of the force are attending the meeting and all security issues, including the Chinese aggression in Ladakh will come up for discussion during it, said a senior Indian Army officer.

The first phase of the conference began on Wednesday and would continue till May 29, 2020 and the second phase in the last week of June 2020.

The apex level leadership of Indian Army will brainstorm on current emerging security and administrative challenges and chart the future course for Indian Army.

To ensure due diligence, decisions are taken through collegiate system comprising Army commanders and senior officers.

During the first phase, which has started at the South Block, various aspects pertaining to operational and administrative issues including studies related to logistics and human resources will be discussed. This also includes the emerging situation along the Line of Actual Control with China.

New Delhi, May 27 : The Congress, after rejecting the government’s economic package announced to revive the economy, has said that sooner than later the government will accept the suggestions made by the Congress.

Former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram on Wednesday said on Twitter: “I had tweeted a few days ago that the day is not far off when the Congress’ suggestions will be accepted by the government. A stubborn government has no choice and must listen to experience and wise counsel.”

“The government has hinted at taking up cash transfers to the poor,” Chidambaram added citing media reports.

“The government has also practically admitted through unnamed sources that it has asked the RBI to be prepared for monetising part of the fiscal deficit,” he further said.

The Congress has been demanding cash transfer directly to the people’s account to the tune of Rs 65,000 crore.

Rahul Gandhi in his press conference on Tuesday said it is important the Government share concrete plans for how it intends to deal with our migrants crisis? How does it plan to scale up testing which is urgently needed? How does it plan to support our MSMEs? How will our State Governments be funded? There are many critical questions that the Government is not providing us answers to, which need to be addressed urgently, he said.

“Earlier this month, the Prime Minister announced an economic stimulus which according to him was equivalent to 10 per cent of the GDP. However, economists in India and around the world have done the maths and come to the sad conclusion that the economic stimulus announced by the Prime Minister is actually less than 1 per cent of our GDP and that too most of it is in terms of loans that could drag our MSMEs into a debt trap from which they will struggle to recover,” Rahul Gandhi had said.
