HYDERABAD: A day after an expelled Dalit Scholar, Rohit Vemula, committed suicide in University of Hyderabad (UoH), Gachibowli police registered cases against Union Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya, Vice chancellor of UoH Prof. P Appa Rao and two others for abetting the student's suicide.Earlier today, student organisations in the university lodged a police complaint after which a case under section 306 of IPC was registered against Bandaru Dattatreya, Prof. P Appa Rao, ABVP President Susheel and Susheel's brother Vishnu. The union minister has been named as A-2 while the VC has been named as A-1 in the FIR. The students alleged that the four had targeted the Dalit Scholars representing the Ambedkar Students Association (ASA), which according to them, led Rohit to end his life.

Susheel, a member of ABVP at UoH was involved in a fight with ASA members over protest against the hanging of Yakub Memon. In last August, he alleged that several ASA members, including the expelled scholars have attacked him. Later he filed a complaint with the university administration against ASA members.

Though the initial enquiry committee constituted by university to probe the issue held none of the ASA members guilty, it is only after Dattatreya wrote to the MHRD Minister that the University administration expelled them in December.

Dattatreya in a letter to Union MHRD Minister, Smriti Irani, requested  her to take action against ASA which held protest against hanging of Yakub Memon.

This was followed by a series of letters from MHRD to UoH, seeking action against the guilty. In December, the UoH Proctorial Board reopened the enquiry and held five scholars including Rohit guilty of attacking Susheel and expelled them.

However, the student organisations in the university alleged that Dattatreya had pressurised the university administration to target the ASA members, in order to protect Susheel. After Rohit committed suicide, the students held protest demanding for resignation of VC and action against those responsible for his death. The university campus remains tensed with protests and deployment of large number of Police.
