Puthiya Tamizhagam president K Krishnasamy today said he has already submitted memorandums to the Centre and Tamil Nadu government urging handing over the case of suicide by a dalit medical aspirant, to CBI. Krishnasamy said he would approach the High Court to know the “real facts” behind the suicide in case there was no action on his demand. The aspirant, 17-year-old Anitha, was reportedly upset after it became known that Tamil Nadu would not be exempted from the ambit of the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test. She had earlier moved the Supreme Court against NEET.

Anitha, daughter of a daily wage earner, allegedly hanged herself at her house in Ariyalur district on September 1, reportedly upset over not getting an MBBS seat. The Puthiya Tamizhagam (PT) annual conference and state executive will be held at Chennai on October six, Krishnasamy said.
