Chennai, Jan 29: BJP's student arm Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad today demanded a CBI probe into the suicide of three girl students of a yoga and naturopahty college in Villupuram District.
Stating that his outfit had held 270 protest demonstrations on the suicide of girl students across the country, ABVP national General Secretary Vinay Bidre said CBI should inquire the matter and sought justice for the victims and their families.
"It is not a small incident, there are contradictions from the side of the college management and police over the issue, the truth should be found out as to whether it was suicide or murder," he told reporters ahead of presiding a public meeting here over the issue.
He sought a Bill by the State and Central governments which would comprehensively address issues including manipulation of courses by "unscrupulous" college managements, and unfair practises like collecting exorbitant fees and forcing students to choose a particular course.
He claimed that college campuses in Tamil Nadu do not have a "democratic atmosphere" for students to express their views and about "unfair practises" of some institutions. He also sought the resignation of State Education and Health Ministers over the issue.
The state conference of ABVP would be held in Tiruchirappalli on February 13 and 14, he added. On Rohit Vemula issue, he said "we demand a fair probe, we want justice, we want justice for Rohit and his family."
