- Aniket Ambhore was found dead in the IIT-B campus in September 2014.
- Authorities called it a freak accident, but Aniket's parents suspect he committed suicide since he was subjected to caste discrimination.
- After Rohith Vemula's suicide, Aniket's mother writes an open letter to Rohith's friends and family.
On January 17, Rohith Vemula, a 26-year-old PhD scholar, committed suicide hanging himself inside a hostel room in the Hyderabad Central University campus, and left a note that said no one is responsible for his act. But friends and family say Rohith was forced to end his life due to constant harassment from authorities since he was a Dalit.
To the family and friends of Rohith,
We don't know where his positive thinking, creative mind and his smile disappeared. Our only crime was that we sent him to IIT-B with a category certificate. If he had studied in ordinary institutions then at least he would not have to listen to so many discussions and advice which weakened his mind.
