In her speech yesterday, Union HRD Minister, Smriti Irani explained in detail how Rohith Vemula’s unfortunate death was used as a political tool by various parties.She said reading from a police report that “No one allowed a doctor near this child, to revive this child. Instead his body was used as a political tool. No police was allowed till 6:30 a.m the following morning. Who tried to help this child?”
MyIndMakers has now accessed the police report that Smriti Irani was reading from which we are producing below. It says “The students did not lodge any written complaint, but they obstructed the police from conducting any proceedings” It also mentions “At about 06:30 hours, the agitating students were pushed aside and dead body of the deceased which was hidden in a room of the hostel was taken out and shifted to Osmania General Hospital, Hyderabad.” More shocking details emerge from the report. Smriti Irani was absolutely right about Rohith Vemula being used as a political tool.
