New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will on Thursday visit Hyderabad to meet the family of the Dalit research scholar who committed suicide.
Rohith Vemula was found hanging in the University of Hyderabad hostel on Sunday after his suspension following an alleged clash with a leader of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, which is affiliated to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi visited the university on Tuesday.
The central government had on Wednesday said that this was not a "Dalit versus non-Dalit issue".
Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani said there was a "malicious attempt to project it as a caste battle". Another central minister, Bandaru Dattatreya, insisted he did not influence the university to suspend Rohith Vemula and four other students.
