Students of various organisations, including Students Federation of India (SFI) mobbed Union minister Smrithi Irani's office and began protesting against the suspension of five Ph.D., students of Hyderabad Central University (HCU). They demonstrated with placards bearing slogans against the suspension and action against those who are responsible for the suicide of Dalit student Rohit Vemula. The police stopped the students by placing barricades and are ready with water canons to disperse them. Meanwhile, Smrithi Irani has appointed a two-member committee that is coming to HCU to review the situation and submit a report.
