Dalit student suicide case: Cong flays Dattatreya

He said the reason behind the Dalit student suicide has not been clearly stated. He added that the Congress has always tried to be with the downtrodden at large and would continue to do so. Meanwhile, commenting on the issue, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said the incident that happened in the Hyderabad University was unfortunate and offenders would be punished soon. He added that Bandaru Dattatreya is a person who is compassionate about Dalits and targeting him for political gain is not fair.
