    NEW DELHI: Foreign minister Sushma Swaraj on Saturday reportedly said that the University of Hyderabad PhD scholar Rohith Vemula, who committed suicide, was not a member of the dalit community.
    News agency ANI quoting Swaraj reported that the foreign minister said, “The facts have come out in the case and as per as my complete knowledge, that student (Rohith) was not a dalit. By calling him a dalit student, this whole case has been raised as a communal incident by some people mainly from Khangress.”
    Earlier on Thursday, in a secret intelligence report forwarded to national security adviser Ajit Doval, agencies cited the statement of Rohith’s grandmother Raghavamma claiming that both her son (Rohith’s father V Mani Kumar) and daughter-in-law (Rohith’s mother V Radhika) belong to the Vaddera community, which is a backward caste and not dalit.
    Rohith and five other students were suspended by the university in August 2015 in connection with an alleged attack on an ABVP leader. The HCU has already revoked suspension of the four students, following uproar over Vemula’s suicide.
