Rohit Vemula Suicide: University of Hyderabad revokes suspension of four Dalit scholars

January 21, 2016 | By

Hyderabad: Hyderabad Central University today revoked its previous suspension of four Dalit students on Thursday after some faculty members of the institution quit their administrative positions as protests over the death of a student heightened.

The university’s executive council took a decision as protests over death of a research scholar resulted in a stand off between the institution and students.

“The Council, after taking into account the extraordinary situation prevailing in the university and after discussing the issue in detail, resolved to terminate the punishment imposed on the students concerned with immediate effect,” HCU said in a statement here.

Protesters however refused to call off their agitation and burnt copies of the EC decision.

The decision came a few hours after thirteen faculty members of an association of Scheduled Caste faculty members of the university quit their administrative positions.

The group also accused Irani of twisting facts when she stated the senior most Dalit professor headed the executive council sub-committee that suspended the students.
