The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), along with students from various faculties at the Amity University campus here, demonstrated on Tuesday against the university administration and the police for not taking any action against those responsible for the suicide of MBA student Dana Sangma.
NSUI’s district president Niraj Singh along with a large number of supporters demonstrated at the main gate of the University here in Pachgaon on National Highway 8.
Niraj Singh told IANS: âStudents at Amity seem to be tense and under high pressure from the administration. Looking at the inaction after the suicide of Dana Sangma, they fear for their future.â âMore than 400 students from Amity took part in the demonstration,â he claimed.
Amity’s Haryana Deputy Vice-Chancellor Major General (retd) B.S. Suhag later came to the gate to appease the agitating students. He assured them that justice would be done.
Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma’s daughter Maina Shera, who is a cousin of deceased Dana Sangma, said a candle light vigil would be held at India Gate on Wednesday.
Maina, a student of Delhi’s Shri Ram College, said the students would agitate until the truth came out.
Agitating students said Dana was not only accused of cheating, the invigilator had also threatened âto finish her career’. Later in examination controller R. K. Dhingra’s room, she was allegedly tagged with the words âflop show’.
Protestors were anguished over the working of Haryana Police. They have registered a case against the university administration under the SC/ST Atrocities Act and section 306 (abetting suicide) of the IPC but no one had been detained so far.
Niraj Singh said demonstrations would be held at a bigger level if proper action was not taken by the University and the police.
Meanwhile, a five-member committee, constituted under the chairmanship of Pro-Vice-Chancellor Padmakali Banerjee, was to submit its report before April 30, but no such report has come yet.
Deputy Vice-Chancellor Major General Suhag told IANS that the report was to be submitted to the Vice-Chancellor. — IANS
