Scratched Paragraph Raises Questions in Rohith suicide note

Published

on

A new tangle came in the Hyderabad university research student Rohith Vemula’s suicide case as  entire paragraph from his suicide note was scratched off

An entire paragraph has been scratched off  from the suicide note of Hyderabad university research student Rohith Vemula and experts are investigating who did it and Why.
Police have sent the suicide note purportedly written by Rohith Vemula, a Dalit scholar with the University of Hyderabad, for forensic analysis.

“The letter has been sent to a forensic laboratory for tests, including handwriting comparison. We will get the report in a few days,” a police officer said.

The letter was found from Rohith ‘s hostel room in the Hyderabad Central University where he hanged himself on Sunday.

There is a possibility that it was Rohith who struck off the paragraph, because of a line written in a bracket next to it: “I myself strike these words off.” It is signed, purportedly by him.

There is speculation that the deleted words are about Rohith’s disillusionment with his own union, the Ambedkar Students’ Association.

What has intensified the mystery is the fact that the 26-year-old’s body was found almost six hours after his death. The gap is unexplained till now.The suicide has set off a political row with students and the opposition alleging that he was subjected to caste discrimination.
Rohith and four other students were earlier suspended from the university following an alleged assault on an ABVP leader. Later, the suspension was revoked but they were barred from accessing hostel facilities.

When contacted, Inspector J Ramesh of Gachibowli police refused to share any information saying it would hamper the investigation.

Hyberabad police has named Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya, Vice Chancellor Appa Rao, Telangana BJP MLC Ramachandra Rao and two students in the FIR filed in the suicide case.
