Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday made a passionate speech in the parliament seeking to expose the opposition’s ‘lies’ on Rohith Vemula’s death.

Among other things, she said that no doctor had gone near Rohith’s body until 6.30 am the next day.

She had said, “This is what the police said. No one allowed a doctor near this child, to revive this child. Instead, his body was used as a political tool.”

Jantakareporter.com has also accessed the video of the evening of Rohith’s death where the on duty chief medical officer at University of Hyderabad can be seen attending to his dead body moments after his body was found.

Rohith’s friend  Zikrullah Nisha, wrote on his Facebook page,”Liar..Liar.. I was the person who called health center immediately after learning that Rohith Hanged in NRS hostel. Within 5 minutes CMO Health center Dr. Rajashree P has reached the spot and she checked the pulses and declared him dead.

There were Telangana police also present there.  Today MHRD minister lied to entire nation that no doctor and police were allowed to check the dead body till 6:30 AM of next day.”

Elsewhere, documents The News Minute has revealed that the report quoted by Irani was not accurate.

Quoting Chief Medical Officer M Rajshree, who was on duty at the time of Rohith’s death, the website reported, “Security officials found the body in NRS hostel room. I got a call around 7:20 pm and I rushed to the hostel to examine the body. By the time I reached the body was removed from the ceiling fan. Within 10 minutes we declared him dead. I also informed the VC immediately. He asked me whether there was any possibility of reviving Rohith. I was there till 3 am that day.”

This was recorded in the health book of the university by Dr. Rajshree. The entry is dated January 17 and the time of death has been recorded as “approximately 7.30 pm”. It also says “Informed to VC, DSW, Registrar and reported to police.” The entry is signed by Dr. Rajshree.

  3. But the same Telangana police gave the report to the Home Ministry, Telangana, and which was sent to or was caught hold of by Smriit Irani too, where they said they were not allowed to enter the hall where the dead body was kept even until in the morning they broke open the doors and lathicharged the students and took the dead body to Osmania Hospital for a post mortem and after PM, handed over the body to Rohit’s mother, which she and other relatives ‘cremated’ very soon thereafter. This is what the police report, from which Smriti Irani cited, says: [the relevant parts of the report] –

    “On 17-1-2016 at about 1920 hours information was received at PS Gachibowli that one student by name Vemula Rohith committed suicide by hanging at NRS hostel room No. I-207. On this, Inspector of Police, Gachibowli along with staff and others rushed to the HCU, found the room open, dead body removed from the hanging and kept on a table. A hand written suicide note was found in the room which did not blame anyone and specifically stated that no one is responsible for the act of killing himself. There was gathering of some students and their number swollen to about 200 and they started protesting. By that time, additional police force and officers were rushed and the strength of students also increased and persons from outside also started coming and everybody started agitating and demanding the immediate arrest of the Vice Chacellor P. Appa Rao, Union Ministers Bandaru Dattatreya, Smrithi Irani and ABVP leaders Susheel Kumar, Diwakar, Krishna Chaitanya and others. THE STUDENTS DID NOT LODGE ANY WRITTEN COMPLAINT, BUT THEY OBSTRUCTED THE POLICE FROM CONDUCTING ANY PROCEEDINGS.”

    And the report goes on to narrate how all the night police were obstructed to approach the dead body even, the dead body was kept in a freezer called for (ostensibly by the students) and shifted to somewhere, and only at 5-30 AM one scholar gave a written complaint, and even then at 6-30 or so they had to rush by force into the hall, pushed aside the students and took the dead body into custody and then sent it for post mortem to the Osmania Hospital.

    “At 0530 hours, one Dontha Prashanth, Ph.D. student of HCU lodged a typewritten report demanding action against 1. P. Appa Rao, Vice Chancellor of HCU, 2. Bandaru Dattatreya, Member of Parliament, Secunderabad, 3. N. Ramchander Rao, MLC, 4. Krishna Chaithanya, 5. Nandanam Sushil Kumar and 6. Nandanam Diwakar under the provisions of SC ST Act and IPC. Based on this report [sic complaint], a case in Cr. No. 20/2015 cited in the first reference above was registered at PS Gachibowli and a copy of the same was issued to the complainant. However, the agitating mob of students did not allow the police to take out the dead body of the deceased to conduct investigation. At about 0630 hours, the agitating students were pushed aside and THE DEAD BODY OF THE DECEASED WHICH WAS HIDDEN IN A ROOM WAS TAKEN OUT AND SHIFTED TO THE OSMANIA GENERAL HOSPITAL, HYDERABAD. Inquest was conducted on the dead body of the deceased at Osmania General Hospital Mortuary and the body was referred for PME. after completion of examination, the dead body of the deceased was handed over to the mother of the deceased under acknowledgment for final rites. The mother and family members of the deceased cremated the dead body of the deceased at Amberpet crematorium.”

    In the entire police report there is not one word about any medical officer present at the scene of offence (death of the deceased), etc. So, naturally relying on this report – by an Assistant Commissioner of Police to GP for Home, High Court – it seems Smriti Irani came to the opinion that there were no medical officers allowed to examine the deceased till the police took out the dead body and commented as she did in the Parliament. Of course, she should have called for more information before making such comments but what is done has been done. One cannot say she is lying unless she knew and hid the truth. She did not know, the police report itself did not mention and so there is no question of the Minister uttering lies on this point. She just surmised that just as the students obstructed the police so were doctors also obstructed since there was no mention of any doctor attending at the scene of offence. Also Inquest is to be conducted almost invariably at the scene of offence, but here that was not to be. Post mortem report is not released so far. Further as per the statement of this MO, Rajashree, rigor mortis had set in on the dead body by the time she arrived and declared him dead. That means Rohit Vemula was already dead at least 3-4 hours back since rigor mortis to set in takes that much minimum time.

  4. THE TRAGEDY IS THAT ALL THESE POLITICAL LEADERS, INCLUDING MINISTERS, ARE SWAYED BY PREJUDICES AND OWN OPINIONS, AND DO NOT CONDUCT A FACTUAL INVESTIGATION AND INQUIRY BEFORE SPEAKING UP. NOTHING PREVENTED SMIRITI IRANI FROM CALLING FOR AN OFFICIAL REPORT FROM THE TELANGANA HOME MINISTER ON THIS MATTER AND ALLIED POLICE AND MEDICAL REPORTS TOO, AND PLACING ALL OF THEM ON THE TABLE OF THE HOUSE BEFORE PROCEEDING TO MAKE ANY INTELLIGENT OR FOOLISH COMMENTS. SO IN A WAY SMRITI IRANI HAD MADE A FOOL OF HERSELF TOO BY HER HASTE AND LACK OF PROPER STUDY AND ANALYSIS OF THE SITUATION. HOWEVER, OVERALL, HER STATEMENT WAS OK EXCEPT FOR HER EXTREME NATIONALISM WITH WHICH MANY OF US MAY NOT AGREE.
