New Delhi, Jan 21 (ANI): Commenting on the Hyderabad Dalit student suicide case, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Thursday said a university is a place to learn and the administration has all the rights to suspend students who do not attend classes. He added that the boy who committed suicide was not barred from studying, going to library or anywhere else. He was only asked not to stay in the university hostel as he was involved in “violent activities”. He further stated that suspension does not mean expulsion and he shouldn’t have taken such a big step.
