60 students detained in Chennai for demanding Smriti Irani s resignation


Around 60 students, who were demanding the resignation of Union Minister Smriti Irani in connection with the suicides of Hyderabad research scholar Rohith Vemula and three medical students in Tamil Nadu, were today detained in Chennai.

Around 60 students, who were demanding the resignation of Union Minister Smriti Irani in connection with the suicides of Hyderabad research scholar Rohith Vemula and three medical students in Tamil Nadu, were today detained in Chennai.

Over a thousand students from various universities had gathered at the University of Hyderabad campus demanding Irani's sacking, and student organisations from across the country have called for a one-day strike in all universities.

A national joint action committee, comprising of 200 student associations, will spearhead the agitation, and they have made plans to mark Rohith's birthday on January 30 with a march to Delhi.

Rohith Vemula, 26, had committed suicide at the Hyderabad Central University 10 days ago, and last week, bodies of three young women were pulled out of a well just opposite their medical college in Tamil Nadu's Villupuram.

A suicide note that they allegedly wrote described the appalling lack of even basic facilities at the college and their struggle to be heard by the administration.
