What would have been a Rohit Vemula 2.0 in IIT Bombay, has turned against leftists as the suicide note of Darshan Solanki has revealed the harasser’s name as ‘Arman Iqbal Khatri’. The SIT team is said to have found the suicide note from his room in which Arman, his classmate’s name was mentioned. Solanki’s friends claimed that he was driven to suicide due to caste discrimination and leftists furthered the propaganda by trying to create a Rohit Vemula 2.0 situation.
IIT Bombay student Darshan Solanki committed suicide by jumping off the seventh floor of his hostel building on February 12. Following his death, many claims of case discrimination against Scheduled Caste students in the institution were leveled. Ridiculous reasons like roommates not talking often were given as reasons behind the student’s drastic decision. Even after IIT Bombay refuted the caste discrimination claims, some used the tragic incident to spread anti-Brahmin hatred.
However, now it has come to light that it was actually a Muslim student who drove Solanki to death. An NDTV report on the same says that the Special Investigation Team found a suicide note which read, “Arman has killed me”. It further mentions that Arman Iqbal Khatri is a classmate of Solanki. Arman has been booked for abetting Solanki’s suicide and police are looking into what transpired between the two of them.
An officer part of the SIT told Hindustan Times, “We were lucky that we could locate the note after moving the chair in hostel room number 802. It was lying under the table where he used to study”. Arman was among the students who were investigated initially. Officers compared Solanki’s handwriting on the suicide note with his notes and his mother also confirmed that it was indeed his handwriting.
