Watch: First “Documentary on Rohith Vemula” released

HYDERABAD: The “Documentary on Rohith Vemula” has been released on Youtube on Saturday and has over 1,500 views within hours of its release.

Directed by Srikanth Chintala, a Hyderabad-based RTI activist and produced under the banner of NGO Public Interest, the 57-minute video on the Dalit research scholar has created ripples on the social media.

26 year old Rohith Vemula ended his life by hanging himself on 17 January last year in University of Hyderabad (UoH).

Vemula’s suicide had triggered a huge political furore with the then HRD Minister Smriti Irani coming under attack, along with Union Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya who had written a letter to the former related to the matter.
