Two students, who shouted slogans during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s convocation address at Babasaheb Bhimrao Amebdakar University (BBAU) today, urged him to do “justice” in the case relating to the suicide of Rohith Vemula of the Hyderabad University.

The two identified as Ram Karan and Amrendra Kumar Arya were arrested and released later on personal bonds.

Karan, resident of Kaushambi and Arya of Sant Kabir Nagar, both students of BBAU invited for LLM degree, were arrested under 151 CrPC (preventive arrest for breach of peace), Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajesh Kumar Pandey said.

Later, they told newspersons that Modi is the Prime Minister and “we want him to do justice. He is a powerful Prime Minister and it is our request to him to do justice in the matter.”

One of them said had the government acted in time, the incident could have been averted.

At the convocation, as soon as the Prime Minister started his speech, the two students stood up and started raising slogans like “Modi Go Back” and “Inqualab Zindabad”, apparently protesting over the suicide of student Rohith Vemula in Hyderabad a few days back.

The security personnel immediately escorted them out of the auditorium and were taken to the police station.
