HYDERABAD: Former MP Prakash Ambedkar, deceased Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula's mother Radhika, and a few others were today stopped from entering the Hyderabad Central University campus here.

"We did not allow them inside the campus so they addressed the students at the main gate," HCU Chief Security Officer T V Rao said.

On March 23, the varsity authorities had decided not to allow any outsider, including mediapersons and politicians, on the campus.

The varsity is on boil since the suicide of Rohith and subsequent agitation by a section of students against the resumption of duty by the Vice Chancellor.

Ambedkar Students Association had organised B R Ambedkar's birth anniversary celebrations for which his grandson Prakash Ambedkar, Radhika and others were invited.
