Rohith Vemula suicide: JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar to visit University of Hyderabad tomorrow

New Delhi: Jawaharlal Nehru University students leader Kanhaiya Kumar will visit University of Hyderabad on Wednesday.

The Hyderabad University today witnessed protests after Vice Chancellor Appa Rao Podile resumed office today after going on leave amid the storm following the suicide of Dalit research scholar Rohith Vemula.

The protesting students, who have been protesting ever since Dalit research scholar Rohith Vemula committed suicide inside the varsity campus, vandalised the VC's residence where he was due to address the press in a shortwhile.

The JNUSU president met Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi in the national capital today.

Kumar led a delegation of Jawaharlal Nehru University students Union (JNUSU) and All India Students' Federation (AISF) leaders to meet Gandhi at his Tughlak Lane residence.

This is the first time that the Congress vice president has met Kanhaiya since he was released on bail from a prison here where he was lodged following an uproar over alleged anti-national activities at the JNU campus. The student leader was charged with sedition.

Earlier, Gandhi had come out in full support for Kanhaiya amid the unrest at the JNU.

Kanhaiya was booked and arrested on a charge of involvement in anti-national sloganeering on the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus on February 9.
