Meghalaya chief minister Mukul Sangma on Friday told The Indian Express that his niece Dana M Sangmas mobile phone was taken away by Amity authorities after she was stopped from taking an examination.
Dana,who the college claims was caught cheating,allegedly committed suicide later.
If a person is distressed,he/she will try to talk to someone. But when her mobile phone was taken away,she couldnt. This is what my investigation has revealed. She could have been counselled, Sangma said.
Meanwhile,the National Commission for Women (NCW) has taken suo-motu cognisance of Danas suicide. The NCW said she committed suicide after she was reportedly humiliated by an exam invigilator.
An NCW statement said a four-member team has also been constituted with Wansuk Syem as its chairperson. The panel will meet police officials and others to ascertain facts.
