Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan has to bear the brunt of the wrath in the death of JNU student after a slipper was thrown at him when he came for last rites of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) PhD student J Muthukrishnan here. It was a few minutes after he arrived at the place in Salem in Tamil Nadu, a slipper was thrown at him.
Muthukrishnan allegedly committed suicide in the Munirka Vihar area in New Delhi late on Monday evening.According to the Delhi Police, Muthukrishnan was depressed over personal issues, though no suicide note was found near his body. There was no evidence that he killed himself due to any issues at the university.The PhD student, however, in his Facebook post on March 10 mentioned about discrimination against Dalits.
"There is no Equality in M.Phil/PhD Admission, there is no equality in Viva-voce, there is only denial of equality. When equality is denied everything is denied," the post said.
The JNU students during Sitharaman's visit to the campus asked her as to why the Delhi Police had not yet registered any FIR or initiated any tangible action in this regard.On Wednesday, Union Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman asked the Delhi Police to register an FIR under the SC/ST Act and start the probe in the suspected death of Jeevanantham.
Meanwhile, the father of Muthukrishnan, Jeevanantham, last day, demanded for a CBI probe into the incident and denied of his son having any sort of mental illness.
