Midnapore (WB): Union Minister Jual Oram today said primary reports available with the Centre have suggested that Rohith Vemula, the Hyderabad University research scholar who was found dead in his hostel room, was not a Dalit.

“Rohith Vemula was not a Dalit but everybody all over the country is trying to give colour to the student’s death. His death was the result of a fight between two groups of students of the university,” the Union Tribal Affairs minister said.

The report of the judicial commission set up to probe the incident will reveal the facts further, he said.
