It has been almost a week since Sushant Rohilla a student of Amity Law School affiliated to IP University committed suicide at his Sarojini Nagar residence on August 10. Even as hundreds of students protest and raise slogans to demand punishment for Isheeta Rutabhasini and BP Sehgal, who are allegedly accused of harassing him for attendance and debarring him ‘on purpose,’ the college has shifted the blame on IP (Indraprastha University) in an official statement on Tuesday saying “The decisions on attendance are taken by the GGSIP (Indraprastha University) and not ALSD.”
Newsd has accessed the ‘Appearing List for LLB’ posted on the University website which clearly carries his name along with his roll no: 10410303813 and the list of subjects that he was allowed to give exams for. The link can still be accessed on the website and the list can be found here- IP list.
As this case has turned into a national outrage with the hashtag #JusticeforSushant trending on twitter, the college has allegedly sent the two accused on ‘forced leave.’ This is not an isolated case as in the past too there have been such cases with the alumni now stepping up and leading the protest. Wednesday’s protest saw people coming up and signing a petition as classes remain suspended.
